Commuting – December 23


Another balmy day with the temps at 25F! The Ural is getting quite dirty as you can see from the photo despite my best efforts to keep it clean.

The snow-pocalypse is scheduled to begin tonight and continue until Saturday. We are supposed to get 20 inches (50cm for you metric people) over the next three days. The weather people have lost their minds saying it will be the worst storm since ‘91 when we had 36 inches (91cm) of snow in 24 hours. I don’t see how the two compare…

Overnight we got six inches of snow, and by 8am the roads were all cleared. I will have to take the Ural out later and practice my donuts.. uh.. I mean emergency winter maneuvers.. yea, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

snow-pocalypse has begun!


  1. Chris:

    I'm like snow pictures so long as they are taken somewhere else. I'm also envious of your ability to ride in the snow while mine is parked, but I do take it out when the roads are clear.

  2. I like that, emergency snow maneuvers, sounds much more professional.....

  3. Just make sure not to put too much frosting on the donuts!

    All my rigs are dirty, too. I don't want to wash them when it's freezing.

    Take care.

  4. Winter washing is one of the problems I can't really nail down yet. I've just been copying Charlie6 and going to the self-service carwash once a week.
