    Vermont saw some snow last week and on Friday I had to drive to an acount. Drove through the mountains. They seemed to have gotten maybe 3 or so inches of snow. This is my truck after the drive.

    Hah! My truck looks like that every day all winter. I try to wash it weekly in the winter, including an underbody wash. Not much else you can do up here in the Great White North. 8)

    Hey Sean, I thought they used sand up in the marquette area too. I know round crystal and Iron mountain they do. That always causes for twice a dirty car then salt. But at least it doesnt desolve the car. Down here 'round chi-town its salt city.

    You guys crack me up.
    I grew up in salt lake city and I jsut thought all cars were covered in a brine compound till I was about 5. I used to just wash mine once a week and do the undercarriage wash once a month. not an issue any more as I play in the pac norwest now.
