My tiny contribution, 1979 244 DL w/ 525K on it doing its thing today:

Andy, why are you driving with snow covered lights? Pretty stupid imo.

Woke up to this the other day, it was snow free the night before when I parked it.

Is this all people can do is nag or correct another here?

Brandon, Alaska would be a bit too cold to live in a car up there this time of year..

Do lights put out heat? I think heat melts snow...

besides if he's doriftooooo-ing everywhere indicators are hardly a concern for the truck that can't see him anyways.

I have a guest bed. Your rent will be paid in service hours.

Lol, sounds like a nice arrangement. In this time and age Alaska is sounding more and more appealing.

Trying this for the first time via picasaweb. Freaking annoying compared to photobucket but they've been glitchy for me lately. Fingers crossed

Augh photobucket it is
