    Default Wheelin' in Georgia snow

    We actually got some of the white stuff today. Its not sticking much, as to be expected, but its still fun to play in.
    No one knows how to drive in the snow down here (I'm from Maine) and I already can hear multiple sirens going up and down the road near my house. Poor sods must be in the ditch already.

    Here are some pics and a video on the way. I hope it comes down heavier.

    We got it down here in SE Bama too. Its crazy two days ago we had tornados and NOW SNOW. My kids said snow and I thought they meant on a cartoon or something. Had to go look out the window. Wonder who pissed off Mother Nature. You're right about not knowing how to drive. They shut down churches etc. and it isnt even sticking here. Then again, someone from the North would be the first one stuck in red clay in the summer. Have fun and nice pics.

    Thanks guys. You are exactly right about the clay - a few years ago it was raining and I was stuck at the bottom of a grass/red clay hill in my 4x4 tacoma. I could only make it up the hill about 20 feet and then unfortunatley slid back down all the way. Had to get a backhoe to pull me out as a chevy z71 and a Bronco had both already failed, but the funny part was that the backhoe got stuck too. He had to use his bucket in the front, extend it and jam it into the ground, and then with a chain from the back of the backhoe hooked to the front of my truck, he pulled both of us up. It took about 20 extensions and pulls with the length of his front arm and bucket, but we eventually got out. I wish I had pics of that one.

    By the way what is wrapped around your front bull bar?

    I lost the link for the video - nothing special, just driving down the road. I'll try to find it though. Wrapped around the bull bar is a old 12mm climbing rope now serving as a tow rope. I had to retire it after a several years of climbing so I figured it would work well as a tow rope - its pulled two cars out of ditches and three leaning trees back away from my house while I cut them down. When I'm pulling something really heavy duty I double up the lengths and its really quite strong!
