Oh thats not good... But on the brite side don't look like there was much of a cross brace on the part thats now on the car so hopefully no damage.

Ducks are smarter than me apparently... -30*C raw temp up here today, windchill brings it down mid -40's.

The gearbox on my Exploder felt like tar this morning and it uses a nice synthetic ATF.

FL instead of Oz I take it since you're talking in degrees F

Too bad JOBS don't fly south for the winter (let alone houses).

To be fair, this is the worst snow we've had here in like 17 years. and is the first snow of the entire winter.

I'm from Cocoa. In 3 months it will be 100 degrees with 125% humidity and flying cockroaches and love bugs galore. You couldn't pay me to actually live in that miserable county. It's all I can do to visit my family there every 2 years or so.

74 degrees in the middle of the state.

I've thought a few times of adding some sort of carport, or canopy to my driveway to extend the usefulness of my 1 car garage..... I've got to remember that every once in a while... the weather gets nasty. Hope all is ok.

Don't you live in the Portland area??? Thought you did. 2009 we had over 15"

Maybe try to scoop out the snow to lighten the load? Unless it's all frozen up into a hard block by now...

This dude must live in Alberta. Where do you hail from newbie?

In reply to oldeskewltoy:

I'm 45-50 miles north on the Washington side. We usually don't get nearly as much as Portland. In 09 we did get some, but it wasn't as much as this (especially this quickly).
