Dude, Where's My Global Warming?
The snowstorm last night was so powerful that it looked for a while like we weren't going to be getting out to visit our daughter and son-in-law for Christmas. We had three foot drifts in front of the house--and the slope was steep enough, and the snow soft enough, that we couldn't at first get on top with the snowthrower. Once we cleared some room, the TrailBlazer couldn't get traction--and the only chains we have are for the Equinox, and they don't fit the TrailBlazer.
The trick was to use 4WD Low--where the wheels can be made to turn slow enough to get traction.
I'm a little unsure if we can get back up the driveway without chains--and good luck finding chains for sale on Christmas Day! We may be staying in the valley tonight.
