Our snow was almost gone yesterday, but got another 6 inches overnight.

These photos are from my driveway, and around our house.

Sorry, Dixie. Not much snow here yet. Couple inches on the ground, and every time it snowed, it melted the next day.

10-12 inches here, drove up the driveway a couple days ago pushing snow with the front bumper, have snow packed in everything underneath, bumpers, etc now.

Snowmobilers laugh at me when I drive by them on the snowmobile trail, but they all say I'm the only one they ever see on the trail, except other sleds. Part of their trail is part of my driveway.

First time in the snow for my '16. Had 16" of snow overnight here in western WA at an 850' msl location. After shoveling the driveway, I put on European style chains on the front and backed into the snow just with the rear wheels, then retreated. No problems, so backed all the way across the street, no problems there either, so ventured out and tried various combos of ESP on-off with and without 4x4 lock on. Couldn't really tell any difference until I made a sharp u-turn while in 4x4 lock and the rear wheels spun around very nicely!

So, I'm pleased with my 4x4, now that I've returned to "the snow country" after more than 55 years. Now to tackle that hill (gains 500' in about a mile)!

Since mine is white it's camouflaged in the snow.
