They need to fine the idiots... there were a few morrons at the intersection here that prevented the fire trucks to move.

$1,000 fine can offset the cost of all these crews risking their lives to help they ones in need... not the fucking morrons getting coffe at Starbucks.

Anywhoo... the trucks.

I'll tell you one thing - if someone wants to commit crime and get away with it, doing it during a snowstorm in NOVA is the best time to do it. The police are woefully unable to deal with the snow.

Fresh from the south of Italy. Probably never saw snow in its life.

Yes!
KM1's and KM'2s are not so good at snow.
The AT tread isn't too bad if they're relatively new...

Just heard a story snippet from NPR. Reporter interviews a dude snowboarding behind a Land Rover in NYC. "It's a Defender 90 so it doesn't get stuck anywhere" he said.

Just saw a clip on the news of two guys boarding behind a Green 90 SW. But that was in DC.

I had to go out back and dig a "culdesac" for my dog - she couldn't pee, because she couldn't bloody squat! (women)...

I think Leesburg got a LOT more than the rest of DC/NOVA looking at your picture Lav.
