Re: Major Snowstorm? Please prove it.....

18" at the time of testing 20" this morning, no pictures though I had to do a little more back and forth to get going but managed to get out this morning. Best 4x4 I have owned, and I have owned many!

Re: Major Snowstorm? Please prove it.....

Ours turned out to be a bust. 3" of sleet, 3" of snow. Didn't get any pics plowing through it last night though- had a bit too much on my mind at the time. The Jeep made it without a problem, but there were a couple spots that were hairy (mainly due to it piling up from the plows and from other traffic forcing me to take less than optimal lines).

UPS chickened out on delivering my Blizzaks yesterday (inconvenient, but I don't blame them), so I should have them mounted up right when they won't be as necessary.

Re: Major Snowstorm? Please prove it.....

Wow. Looks like we have a winner... Chi-One!

I park my vehicle outside. Last night, I think some of the ice underneath melted, causing it to move slightly. Woke up to an alarm going off at about 3am.

Re: Major Snowstorm? Please prove it.....

Just today I saw a new Ad for the WK2 here in Toronto.
It starts with a white-out snow storm and all you can barely see are headlights approaching from afar. Then it says, this might be an Alberta Clipper but for the new GC it's a time to play (to that effect) and you then see a GC barrelling through deep snow.
