Global warming skeptics might have me convinced... If the world really is heating up, there's certainly been no sign of it in my neck of the woods.
This morning was another snow day - with this awaiting me when the sun went up:
That's bad enough - but the snow was so thick, I couldn't even get to the driveway until I'd shoveled out my front door!
Halfway down the driveway - here's a picture of me looking seriously unimpressed. At least I didn't have to go to the gym that morning, though!
An hour in, and The Locomotive's status was largely unchanged from earlier.
The previous night's snow had been mixed with rain and thunder (something the meterologists out here are calling "thundersnow"). While that sounds very cool, it basically meant that the snow was brick-like and icy, rather than the soft, powdery stuff we're used to.
Eventually, however - VICTORY!
And I'm happy to say that The Locomotive cranked first time, and handled the snow like a trooper. Say what you want about rear-wheel drive cars; but when those boys in Flint, Michigan built mine, they'd obviously anticipated tackling the odd snow storm.
