    Went for a short ride in the new snow last night. No action shots, though, because no one else would go out in the 2 degree weather with me!

    To this in less than a week.

    I got back from Vegas and a few days later I hit some black ice and put my truck into the guard rail and about 50mph, doing $7500 in damage to it and probably anoth $3K of damage to the guard rail.

    Yep... I'm definetly sick of winter!


    Might have to make an early trip to Moab just to end this winter crap a little early!
