snow getting sucked in!

cruzing the highway the other day in heavy snow and decided to pull over , open the hood just to see if snow was getting in not expecting to see much if any and to my horror my afe filter looks like a ****in snowball, looks like it was gang banged by frosty the snowman so I decided to shed apart a cardboard box that I had in the back as a temp grill cover, has anyone else had this problem? Is the snow being sucked in the side grill mostly?

Do you have the stock air filter in the truck?

If so, there's a TSB regarding snow packing in the intake tract.

If not, the hole in the fender that allows air to come in through the fender or behind the RH headlamp, yu might want to plug it off. Yeah it's gonna suck hot air out from under the hood, but it won't suck snow.

They came up with a grill cover for the trucks, I have one on mine. Guess it works so far.
