Thank you! It was a lot easier than I thought.

I think I experienced the worst snow we've ever seen in my area since I moved here. Both major arteries to/from my town were closed down, but I dodged the mess before I could could even sit in traffic for one minute. Taking the long way home, I found that this abandoned property was an amazing view. (or lack thereof!) I'm not a photographer by any means, but I'm still glad I stopped.








My two favorites!




Made it home!


And hit 225k this morning. It's crazy to think how much I've done to this turd in under 20k.

Gorgeous. I love these wagons in snow. Especially stock/stockish ones.
If your heater core is anything like mine, it makes cold weather driving so comfortable.

Keep it up, thanks for the awesome pics, one of my favorite threads by far

Thanks! They're so capable in the snow with their length, rear drive, and skinny tires. Sadly, I can't say that this heater does amazing work. I might be spoiled and too used to newer cars, but I think the ball valve style valve is the problem. Mine is on or off with very little adjustment in the middle unless I turn the AC on. With my over cooling problems, I don't get warm until I'm about 15 minutes into my drive either. That's after warming the car up too. I wish I knew what was going on there. My only idea is set up some cardboard between the grill and radiator.

I don't mean to rant. I do appreciate the kind words. That one issue is just driving me nuts since the MPGs went down to about 19-21.
