Drove over to the gf's place today, even in 4wd I was having trouble keeping the truck on the laneway.
Drove into town busting through 3-4 foot drifts with about 20' of visibility.
Here is a pic, visibility has improved a lot but it's not nice out there.



1.6W 445nm on the left, ~600mW 405nm on the right ;)

We're supposed to get about 4" of snow here starting tomorrow. It sucks I don't have a functional 445nm build.. Guess i'll have to settle for RGV snow beamshots.

Well its dark now, I can still hear the wind rippin out there so a couple more snowy beamshots might be in order, the 405 isn't very pretty in that pic :(

Wish me luck braving the elements ^_^

Cancel that, there is a snowdrift blocking the door closed.......
Howinnahell am I gonna get out of here?

Battering ram? :D
And I thought I had it bad when I shoveled about 8"-12" of snow out of the driveway.

Was going to get groceries today, decided tomorrow would be better.
That may have been an error in judgment :eek:

Oddly, my girlfriend likes to shovel snow. She is a little strange I know, but I don't think her car will even be able to make it up the lane lol.

Thats exactly what I had to do.
I popped the screen strip out of the channed, popped the screen out, tunneled my way out but loading the snow in a pot and dumping it into a sink full of hot water (overflows into the other sink's drain), and then I shoveled the doorway clear.

It is still a whiteout....

I didn't get pics of the door but this is my truck :eek:







Chatted with the gf on msn before I got out, she did offer to shovel her way up the driveway, shovel open the door and rescue me :crackup:
I think I've got a keeper ;)

Yeah, that is all flat ground by the way, the driveway has 4 foot drifts across it and they are really hard now from busting through them yesterday.
I'm thinking a few truckloads of salt would be easier >_<
