Snow? Yes please. I'll take several inches.
« on: February 25, 2014, 12:06:34 AM »
It never snows around here. So as you can imagine when it does everything comes to a halt...

EXEPT ME. I had to pull this baby out and go for a burn around the neighborhood. I was the only car on the road.

I took this picture around two this afternoon. It's now nine o'clock. I haven't seen a car go by in over six hours and it hasn't stopped snowing. Any ideas?

ideas?

1) go for another drive around the neighborhood

2) move someplace where it snows more often - your Eagle will be much happier lol

Great looking Eagle!!!

Yes, very nice ride. Looks a lot like MonkeyJoe's Gold Digger! :)

Where is here? Would be curious where you live. You should go sign up the SOAR Database so we can get another Eagle owner on the map!

I live in Halfmoon Bay, British Columbia.

I put my location in my profile but I guess it doesn't show up when I post.

What is the SOAR database? I'd like to be on the map.

Air-conditioning is so cool!

Great pic!!

I live in Tennessee where it rarely snows, and if it does the whole town basically shuts down

recently we had some snow here and everyone was slip sliding around the roads

the Eagle just went past them all, even big 4x4 pick ups, never even spun a wheel

I think I surprised a lot of people
