Default Upstate NY got a little snow in the last 24 hrs.

I came outside to see this at 7am.




Check this drift out.



The snow added some much needed weight over the rear axle.

West coast guys should really dig that drift since it looks like a ocean wave.

I enjoyed hitting snow banks in my work truck, but I did manage to get stuck 3 times, one time required a shovel. I had the duallys smoking trying to get out. Tire smoke, smell and everything else that is awesome about roasting tires that I don't have to replace. My work truck looks like this. It weighed about 15k lbs with a load in it today.

It goes right through them. The only reason I got stuck was because of cars parked on the road on one way streets. I had to lose my momentum in order to avoid them.

Yea, imagine how aerodynamic it was. My mileage could have doubled. Wind tunnel tested, and created for that matter.
