I've got a thread going in General Diesel Discussion about who's got snow. Right now in Rhode Island, we're getting pummeled with snow & I absolutely love it! Lately, the law's been closing down trails & monitoring closed roads for people who want to have some fun with their pickups, so the only places I can have some fun in 4x4 are the main roads where there are little to no residents/traffic & a few trails that the police, I guess, don't know about.
So I wake up this morning & the snow is well over my picket fence & both trucks & the Mustang is completely buried(
). I threw the Tank on the rope & my wife went out to shovel. I figured let the block heater warm up for a little while, start the Tank, let it warm up, brush the snow off it, & then throw the rope on Heavy........& then have some fun! It went as planned, as soon as the Tank was warmed up, I had the snow cleaned off & I was going sideways up every side street on my block & having some fun with a couple of local kids on 4-wheelers & snow mobiles. I guess I wasn't paying attention to the time, but when I went back to the house to pick my wife up, she was still shoveling the driveway & I found out I'd been riding around for more than 2hrs.
She goes off about getting the driveway shoveled & me screwing around with the truck & "we'll never get out of the driveway; blah-blah-blah......". Never get out of the driveway? We got 2 diesel-powered 4x4s, what's wrong with you!?
Basically; I'm the king of the castle & I think it's more fun getting out of a driveway full of snow rather than breaking my back & shoveling snow. I know this sounds unconventional, but I've gotta go to work @ 2:00am tomorrow & I want a thrill before I'm on lockdown for 8+hrs. I vote for "not shoveling the driveway" while my wife is against it. I'm pretty sure I read in the Bible that on the 7th day, God saw all of his creations were good & made Sunday the day of rest & to tear up the roads in the snow with your diesel pickup & have much fun & aggravate neighbors,..................& not shovel the damn driveway!
So for all of you guys who "wear the pants" in your household, have snow on the ground(especially in your driveway), & believe the same as I do, VOTE! I actually know what the correct answer is as far as the shoveling goes, but I want to show my wife there are hundreds of people in the US having fun slinging snow with their tires in their driveways instead of with a shovel!
I'm basically saying to her now; "But all the other guys are doing it!"
