Snowy Rx8

......uh oh... QUICK! Check calendar!

AHHHHHH!!! Nature, You Little Rascal!

It was March 31st. The grass was green, the street sweepers were out, birds were chirping, cars were clean, jackets were off, and the snowblower was put away for the season. I then awoke on the morning of April 1st. I stood up, and peered out the window like a zombie. Just as my eyes began to focus, Nature screamed in my face “APRIL FOOOOOOLS! It’s still winter! L0Lzz!” Ugh. I hate being Punk’d by Nature.

This Is What Cars Look Like in Boston Right Now.

Over the weekend, I found myself hanging out late night in Boston.  After grabbing a delicious cupcake at “Mike’s Pastry“, I snapped off a few photos of my surroundings.  If this thaws by July, it will be a miracle.  Keep in mind, it hasn’t snowed in a week, and we have 20 more inches on the way.

Note: Night time + Winter + Photos = Not Pretty. Sorry ’bout that. I swear I am working on my photography skills to provide you with higher quality in the months ahead.  At least you know that they are real!

The Plow Guy Does What He Wants Because He’s The Guy With The Plow..

Just when you think your day isn’t going to be so bad, the big bad plow guy comes along and buries your A4 and GTI.  It took 3 Guys and a friendly plow truck, about an hour to free these two from winters filthy stinkin’ grip.

Not funny evil plow guys, not funny.

6AM in New England During a Snowpocalypse

This is what driving in a snowpocalypse looks like.

You may have heard a rumor that the New England area is getting riggidy-rocked by a snow storm right now.  I would like to go ahead and confirm that rumor.  I know it’s true because I was outside in my dark driveway pegging my snowblower off the rev limiter at 6am.  Luckily, my neighbors like me……well, they used to at least.  Anywho, I assume that some of the 1A Auto blog readers are probably sitting on the beach right now in the hot sun with a margarita in 1 hand laughing at us New Englander’s, and I wanted to show off how much fun snow is.  Please excuse the dark pictures. Again, it was 6am and I’m not 100% sure that I was even awake when I took them.

So that is what about 6-7 inches of snow looks like, but its raining down on us at an amazing rate.  By the end of today we will have to dig 15 inches down to find the earth again.  I’m just hoping that it stops before I clean my driveway again so that I won’t have to do it tomorrow morning as well.

Yay snow.    Ugh….
