See all the snow? See how deep it is on the roof of the car? I cleared the snow from the windows, ran the defroster and window heaters for awhile, but left that.
I shoveled some snow away from the back of the car, so it wouldn't have to go from bare driveway up on to a foot or more of snow, but then I just backed out. No problems, not on that, not on the snow and ice packed street, not on the bumpy, rutted roads.
When I came back, I didn't park as far in as before, so this shows the depth of the snow I drove through.
