Re: Pics of your truck in the snow

I'm only 20, so this story from the late 90s seems like a long time ago. It was blizzarding and my parents little sister and I were driving home from town in our brown 1979 GMC 4 wheel drive. We made it to our 1/4 mile long driveway to find it snowed in. I can't remember how many runs dad took at the driveway but we never made it more than a quarter of the way down it. So we left the truck at the main road and walked to the house. The next morning I had to walk back through all the snow to catch the school bus. I was upset because we didn't get a snow day and we obviously had enough to justify one lol. I'm now wishing dad didn't get rid of that truck. I can still hear the tranny whine.

Edit: I'm with Tim. I love the snow. I feel bad for you guys from down south. :P

I have to agree, I love a good drive out in the country in the snow.

This was the first snow of the season here back in October

It's just so peaceful when you don't have to deal with other drivers who don't belong on the roads.


And just because... This isn't even snow, but the hail storm we had this past March, there were "hail drifts" over 3ft deep in some areas, it ranged from dime to tennis ball sized hail.

Here's mine. Just snowed a whole load on Wednesday. Lots of fun "fish-tailing".

Just got new bigger tires on the back.

Re: Pics of your truck in the snow

I thought I had a few pictures of mine in the snow, but I can't really find them just now. We do get a little bit. That fence is 6' tall:


I do have this, from last week getting home from the junkyard:



I wish I didn't have any experience driving in the snow.

You know, these two photos of yours look like they could have been taken back in the late 60's.....there really isn't anything that gives them away as modern day shots. Congratulations.....they are beautiful.

Great thread!

These are not pictures of mine, but I thought some of the new people would like to see some of the pictures of snow and trucks that were previously posted.

Not sure what the temp was here,but it was sunny and at least 45. No reason for salt on the roads yet,so I saw a sweet Super Bee drive by my house(both ways),a few Harleys,and a Model A all decked out with Christmas decorations on the road today. That may change soon and already has up home in the mountains. They got a foot yesterday and more tomorrow (we get rain). I have to drive up in it. They git 3' from Superstorm Sandy late October!

It snowed a little last night, here are a few photos from today. We live in the country and actually get a lot of snow. I'll post more when the deep stuff comes.

Re: Pics of your truck in the snow

It's good to see I'm not the only member in ND outside of Fargo lol. My pics were with my cell phone as well since my real camera died after one picture. We had frost up here for 3-4 days. I lucked out and got pictures the day before it all fell off.
