Jesus Christ! It was my Singer's birthday party at the bar last night, and there was a terrible blizzard. I got stuck like 3 times in developments picking my group of friends to goto the bar. When I was returning afterwards to drop them off, I couldn't get 10 feet into this development, and I did a full throttle turn, followed by some E-Brakage to whip my back end around(this is Key to FWD in the winter) so I wouldn't lose much momentum. 10 feet people. 10 feet. Then a plow saw me and stopped, started laughing... "You're not serious are you?" he asked. So he radio'd to the other plow and I followed these two plows through this development. My friend leaps out the window while the scorts still goin 20mph cause he was tanked. Now I'm down to 1 more friend to drop off, but oh noo -- I decided to stop home to grab one of my bands demos for him... I knew it wasn't a good idea to pull in my driveway while i just ran in to grab something, so I left her in the street(mind you which has atleast 8 inches of snow on the surface)

I grab the CD and then try to leave... Sitting there trying everything just to get my car to move 5 feet. Bouncing the rear while full throttling... the reverse, drive, reverse, drive, reverse, drive techinque didn't work... 1st gear wasn't doing it for me either...

SO NOW THE PERILOUS TASK! Getting my Escort back in the driveway! It wasn't 15 feet from my driveway, but we had to get out in the street and shovel the street... and we're drunk and freezing. My car wasn't going anywhere.... After an hour of shoveling and full throttling in reverse, I finally got her in the driveway... I mean, it was blocking the 4 other cars we have in the driveway on either side, but it was in the driveway. Huzzah!

This pisses me off though cause I just got those tires :-(

This also sucks being forced to use the Escort as my daily driver in the winter, but you have to play the hand you're dealt.

Anyone else in the midwest get totally hammered with snow last night?







By the way these pictures are from this morning, after we shoveled the drive and moved the cars around.

don't forget northeast indiana.

I had 3 foot snow drifts blowing completely over my car this morning. It took me 40 minutes to move 10 feet... and proceed to get stuck again.

Separating will not fix that.

I'll give someone a cookie if they can guess what the other cars in my driveway are.

I mean, the van's an easy one. The car infront of mine could be difficult ;-)

Oldsmobile Aurora, 4.0 V8, fwd, 4A transmission, your escort, a dodge caravan with /probably/ a 3.0 V6 and I don't know what the old car is with the chrome bumper.
