we got 3 in of snow, VERY unusual for us in central texas. i haven't seen that much snow in 25 years. and now that i had my fix, i am good for another 25 years! although i do see how much fun you northern guys can have in this. i never quite realized how much of a mess it makes. garage is filthy and so is the machine. i am also not a fan of windshields, but ordered front and rear ones last night for the cooler rides!
