What did you do to / for your E53 today??


April 15th the exact middle of spring in mid Wisconsin 2018. That's an e53 inisde there.

That was 15" single storm snowfall. Lucky timing I had my special 235s with me and had no problem plowing though the 20-30" snow drifts. I was impressed with being able to drive anywhere before the plows came though considering the snow was 8-10" higher than my ground clearance!

I will - and more so once I get these struts swapped and the '5 back to good operating condition again!

I do miss the snow though... just a little...

I knew you would get a chuckle out of our 6" storm Andrew. But here in the South with maybe 3 plows in our state, it becomes a challenge. We had no UPS/Fedex/Amazon deliveries, schools closed, trash collection, etc. The struggle is real.

Actually i was quite shocked to see the height on the ruler! I've been in places where the locals couldn't navigate 1/4" of the wrong kind of snow.

In fact that was Wisconsin a few weeks ago. Passed seven cars spun off the road in about 18 mile zone of i-94!

Hey. After last year, I'll be happy if we don't see snow down here in San Antonio for another 25 years.

Though we did have a helluva windy day Saturday. Constant 20mph and gusts of 50+. The neighbor's blue tarp on his roof never had a chance. Maybe this will motivate him to fix it... no, probably not. He's had packages of shingles on his roof for the last few months.
