Big things with little cars

Snow. It’s not something that happens in Charleston, or coastal South Carolina in general. We get the occasional slush on the ground every year or two, but nothing real that sticks or lasts more than a few hours. We haven’t had actual snow since 1989. This year however, we got REAL snow. Like 7 inches of powder. Ice on everything. Heck, at one point it was warmer in Anchorage, Alaska than it was in Charleston, SC. I guess Iggy and Mrs. Claus got Heat Miser and Snow Miser to make a deal. It shut down the entire tri-county area since we don’t have snow plows or stuff to treat the roads. And it stayed that way for 5 days until the temperatures got high enough, long enough, to melt most of it.

Needless to say, I didn’t have to go into the office and got to spend lots of time outside enjoying this stuff I know nothing about! And I of course took a few inclement-weather-appropriate diecasts with me. Enjoy the pics!

Day 2 - The sun came out.

Psh, take your puny 4wd and go home. The 6x6 is here to show you how to REALLY drive through the snow.

The local PD was happy to have this Subie on hand to make it out to all of the inevitable traffic accidents. The police warned everyone to stay off the roads, but this Range Rover feel like listening....

No snow plow? No problem! The 6x6 makes it’s own path.
