up here in the North East just got a whicked 10 inches or so - talk about a gas mileage hit! OUCH! Nice thing about a 90% grill block is there is PLENTY of heat in the xB . . . have to open the windows in 26 degree temps!
Try a 60 foot long, 20 foot wide driveway with uneven gravel surface on a steep grade.
Wife and I both have 4wd so I usually don't shovel or get it plowed. Instead, I drive up and down it a bunch of times (that about wraps it up for FE on this tank!) to pack the snow so we have no trouble clearing it. We park in the backyard because the driveway is too steep to park on when there's snow.
I've got a largish sidewalk leading to the driveway and some shoveling to do to make sure we can get to our vehicles in the backyard, though.
This week is supposed to be warm and rainy/sunny, so I expect a lot of melting.
Happy 3rd day of Chanukah,
A belated happy Saturnalia (Dec. 17-23rd) to the Saturn owners and Roman reconstructionists,
Happy Sol Invictus,
Happy Winter Solstice,
Merry Xmas (for Futurama fans)
I'm sure I'm forgetting something here...
