Did a search for snow photos and didn't find anything. As I've been in the south for the last 15 years or so, they're a rarity for me!

My '84 daily driver in the foreground, '89 Westy in the background...everything else is covered or at the shop in parts... Very Happy

Let's see some "real" snow!

(Oh, there's an '89 parts van back there too...I need help...)

Nope, no snow here in sunny Arizona. Just finished 4 days straight skiing on Snowbowl, my legs are like jello (actually now they match my middle). More snow tonight ~ tomorrow, Monday....

Obviously its not a Vanagon, but an amazing Splitty just after a storm in the Sierra Nevada Mtns. It's not mine, but I sure wish it was. I just hope it didn't crunch the top!

lovedavdubs- I'm pretty sure these are from the same storm. Northeast Blizzard '06?

I had owned my Van for about a week.

I was parked on a corner and the wind took care of clearing most of the snow for me, but left my van quite a "hairdo"

Yup Laughing That was the one. My Van wound up with an 80s vintage box fade. Cool I suppose it was appropriate. Laughing

Mother natures been kinda punking out since then. I got no complaints though.
