    Liked your pics there 82. Reminded me of my old 77 GMC. Small block 350 with a big Holley on top. Never got it where it wouldn't go. I thought I did once going through a deep drift (think cut in the hill). I hadn't been able to see for a couple minutes and it quit on me. I tried opening the door , no luck. I rolled the window down and reached up. Sure enough all I could reach was snow.
    I though about it a couple minutes and let the snow around the motor melt. She fired back up and away we went. The motor just simply ran out of air!

      Winter is really kicking and screaming up here today . M-28 and US-2 , the east ,west highways across the U.P. are closed down as are many other highways . A lot of the back roads are totally impassible except by tractor , maybe . We got up to the grand high of 7 after being at 0 this morning . Winds are at 25-35 mph sustained with higher gusts . We may be -20 or colder tonight actual temp .
      I am glad I'm not out on the highways this weekend with so many roads being closed . I'd bet the Mackinaw Bridge is probably closed too .
      After today Feb is half over with . The days are noticeably longer . I guess better weather is coming .

          Wonder how the Polar bears are doing up north? All that ice melting up there because of Climate change you know. I'm sure there's probably very little ice left for them, NOT!!!

              Is the weather chick lying, or is it really that cold in middieland? Ken might need 2 block heaters + a heated shop for that new chariot. Did the fancy lettering freeze off yet?

                  I'm tired of cold... I'm tired of winter... so far it wasn't that bad during Dec and Jan (though Nov was real cold)... but it is all coming back with a vengeance now. All I want is sunshine and summertime

                      Same as steffy here. The temp has actually been dropping all day. Currently 1*F with a brisk wind of course.

                      A quick trucking tip for you ECI when you have hired guns winter driving over the road...No news is good news. For you buddy, no charge.

                        So, it is -1 with a windchill of -35, and all the weather skanks and jerk wads are talking about is snow and cold in Boston/NYC and everyone went to school here in MN. A month or so ago, the weather skanks and jerk wads were all talking about the BRUTAL cold in MN and midwest, it was -10 with -30 windchills and schools called off school.

                        A real WTF moment here.

                        Apparently those buses with parts made in Mexico listen to the weather channel so they don't know it's cold now?????

                          Don't have a coronary on us, DRYFRMNM. The weather folks are just sensationalists, with EVERYTHING described as record hottest, coldest, hardest, wettest, earliest, latest, and all those things can only go back to when computers were invented. Those folks have no memory, only recall.
