Turned out to be a decent day here in San Diego. Despite the threat of drizzle we went ahead with our annual Breakfast on the Beach in Mission Bay. LOL.

3.5 hours shoveling w/ son to clear a path to take the D out. 15 psi and the KM2s were an animal out there. No issues though the deep stuff.

There was a shot of a d90 sw (green) pulling a snow boarder in DC I believe in the news last night, pretty cool.
We just had ice and a little snow down here.

It needed snow chains???? Guess that's normal for a mall rated Jeep.

LOL... well, that's not what I was referring to.

Although, if I was towing a dude around without a helmet on in that environment, I think I might want the chains to make sure I, at least, go where I'm aiming to go.

Cabell and I ended up hooking one of his 110's and my lwb together and pulled a VDOT spreader/snow plow out on our road. Guy got to Cabell's mailbox and stuck it.

Put a kinetic between Cabell and the big dump truck and two tow straps hooking me to Cabell. The traction control was modulating like crazy in the LWB but we pulled that big truck right out.

Sadly, I only got a very short ride in the deep stuff. Literally minutes before they county came thru I took the 2A into the unplowed road. Low low and lotsa welly and it just romped thru it. Most awesome ten minutes of my weekend by a mile. Spent rest of my time digging.

Experience plowing with Defender:

I have about 700 feet of curved driveway on an incline. Once you push 2-3 feet of snow, it becomes a brick wall!

26" of snow is just too much for a Defender but the good news is it is also too much for snow clearing services! Most trucks got stuck in my neighbors driveways and had to be towed out. I read online that the best things to have on board when you plow snow for a living (I don't) is a cell phone and buddies who can come to help pull you out. Even the township got stuck plowing our street and it was a large dump truck!

I got stuck numerous times in spite of locking the differential and putting it in low. . Once the tires get on top of packed snow, they spin. Had to dig it out a few times.

1. plow very slowly, backing up frequently to ensure you can retreat.
2. Carry a shovel
3. Plow as the snow is falling. Don't leave it until the end of the storm. I didn't
3. Finally: get a snow blower. The bright commercial guys didn't use their plows,, the used gas driven manual snow blowers.

Lessons learned!
