2ft so far and snowing into the night. Got her out, and went driving around. I can't say it enough I love these snow tires.



And the fiance's Focus.

The tires dug a lot more aggressively than I expected, and I'd pulled fuse F19 to kill traction control. You can't see it, but due to the way the driveway slopes so hard in the center the back wheel was off the ground. I just left it there for a few days, until the ice had mostly melted, and pulled it out with my F250. Wasn't in a hurry for it since I wasn't going to be driving it until all that stuff had cleared up anyways.

big snowfall, high winds, messy roads... headed home from work... a VW Jetta and a UPS truck get stuck trying to enter the subdivision (the V8 engines in those trucks sound pretty nice when they're getting the piss revved out of them!! lol). freed after 10-15 mins of pushing and shoveling...

then it was my turn at another area...



^ needless to say, I didn't make it. lol.

after some shoveling and neighbourly assistance from the Town Car driver (also got stuck), got her parked up on the curbside looking like hell. then it was time to shovel the driveway for a couple hours!





^ I think I like this new wheel design. hah :)

little Focus took it all like a champ. no issues other than that area with shin-deep snow, which most cars would get stuck on anyway. I am now very sore and tired. but it was definitely an interesting evening. kinda tired of winter these days...
