    Just had to vent for a moment....I can't remember the last time the 328 was on the road. It's been snowing in Boise non-stop for the last month or so. ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!!

    Ty,

    I feel your pain. Snuck my car out just after noon. Made it back to my house right before an ugly mix of hail and snow dumped from the sky.

    Hit the slopes and get your mind off cars. The skiing has been awesome!

    It's weird for years we're in a drought (maybe still are). Not enough water, reservoirs low, then this year we just get dumped on! Roads and schools closed. Oh well nice change of pace I say.

    ...but being employed as a smokejumper.....drought=job security and busy summers. Thus, affording things like my 328, so when it snows a lot, not only am I unable to enjoy my car, but earning potential is diminished.

    Albeit, the skiin' is pretty good for Idaho....

    I've tried, but the build-up of ice on the shady part of my drive exceeds the clearance of the red car.....not to mention the shaded street. It's as bad as a potholed dirt road...'cept icy.

    Glad you had some success.

    I just got my car but have snuck it out 3 or 4 times during clear windows.... it's been torture waiting though.

    But, as already mentioned, I find therapy on the slopes. I takes what I can gets.

    Blame it on global warming, they blame everything else on it!

    I've lived in this area for 30+ years and I don't ever remember it snowing this many times in one winter. I've had snow at my house at least 8 or 9 times this winter. I remember times when we had more snow at one time, but not this many times. Oh, and don't even get me started on the wind. Working near the water it has been howling almost every day for the last three weeks it seems.

    To hell with skiing, I'm ready for spring or a trip to Arizona!!
