First Snow, First Wrangler

Today was the first snowfall in Chicago. I love the snow, but with my new Jeep JKU, I love it even more! Even my Jeep was happy -- see the pic below. This thing just eats the snow. What fun today. Just thought I share the picture below.

Send us a pic from Tahoe. Skied Squaw and Homestead out there, and my wife (in her single days) used have a house at Homestead -- "Smile your at Homestead." Hoping for many more snow days here because I do alot of snowshoeing and xcountry skiing in the midwest, but save the big mountain stuff for Snowmass, Colorado.

Let it snow!

Topless in Buff, love those big dumps!! Can't wait for the big snow here in Chicago. Farmer's Almanac is predicting a snowy winter for us. I live near Lake Michigan, so I get a lot of the lake effect snow.

There are many offroad pix on the board, but I'd love to see MORE snow pix!
Maybe I'll start a new thread. . . .

Lake effect snow warning today and tomorrow with accumulations up to a foot by midnight. Might have to make an excuse to get out.
