Have only had a couple of dustings in lower MI, not a happy camper!! Haven’t had a chance to try out the new truck yet!! Supposed to get the first measure snow tonight, 2”-4” which means a dusting maybe. Corner of I-69 and I-94 is not in the snow belt...

I see all these nice clean snowy pics in here and wish that's what ours was like. As soon as we get any snow here, they are out dumping sand and salt/brine/chemicals all over the roads to melt the snow and ice. Here's what it looks like as soon as you drive anywhere, and it makes me sad. The poor vehicles here get so rusty underneath because of it too :headbang::crying:

We show clean snow photos because we take photos when its fresh. Since it snows here very often, like 6 days of the week, its pretty easy to get white, fresh snow photos.

Mine looks just like that or worse all winter long. Just a way of life living in the north in my eyes. haha
Just gotta just pile the miles on early so you get your money's worth out of the vehicle before it rusts away. haha

Yeah, mine looks like that most of the time. I run it through the car wash once a week to get rid of the salt. Next day, same look all over again.

Hi Folks,

Ranger had to drive in snow showers on I19 heading to Tucson for a drive through Covid Vaccine shot for Marige as she is over 75 years old. Up at 5 am and finally made it to the innoculation tent about 8:30....Then home in rain and sleet, now this.... Snow on the patio...Sheesh....Did move here to see snow....YUK!

Okay, are we taking pictures of Rangers in snow, or freezing rain here?
That’s a rain/snow mix at best. Yesterday I was lamenting how AZ had more snow than Toronto. What a difference a day makes. Today, I think I removed more snow from my own sidewalks than fell in Green Valley!

We finally got a bit here last night into today. There will be no Ranger pics in it though. The FiST got pretty dirty on last night's drive to work and the Ranger is clean in the garage. Washing 2 vehicles (wife's car also) is better than 3.

My kids will be shoveling more snow than those Arizona pics as well.
