At the suggestion of other members I've started a thread to archive photographs of our wagons in their natural element. Thread title graciously borrowed/Jacked from ProlixArgon.

GO!

Kicking it off with some reposts from this year's paltry east coast winter offering...

I agree, ProlixArgon.

It makes me want an XC70 and I never wanted one before.

These are great pictures.

I bet we might see more after this weekend, too. :D

Whoa this is off to a REALLY strong start. Would be more than happy to see this as a global thread I just didn't know where to put it!

It's currently snowing pretty hard here in Central VA. I have about 5 inches as of right now, with an expected 2+ feet by the time all everything's over.

It's too cold and I'm too lazy to go out and snap a pic of sleeping beauty right now, so here's a couple from last season:





And finally, one taken last season when Prolix and I got bored and started meddling with wheels off his XJ

Snow dust shield.



And a harbinger for trouble/fun that we will see later.



The snow in central VA is between 4 & 6 inches, but the wind is blowing and it's predicted of gusts up to 20 miles an hour. There is a foot and a half on this windshield "drift."

Pre-Christmas trip to Whistler - four adults + ski gear + big cooler + food stuffs + overnight bags - no problem!

Loving it. I have the TF-80SC trans, so it takes the increased torque without issue. Feels extremelys strong, on acceleration it just pulls and pulls. I miss my 2.5T something fierce, the D5 doesn't have the same joy when downshifting, and it doesn't sound as GETOUTTHEWAYFUTTBUCKER, but it goes like hell. On stock ECU for now.

My first snow run this year.

Unfortunately, it's been a bit weak for winter this year...



But I may get to make up for it by possibly driving up in this area in the next few weeks.

JUST got our 02 XC back from the dealer this morning. Maryland DC & VA are getting pounded right now. I'm itching to get out tomorrow and take pics to share. Having a back that got thrown out today before the first snowflake fell has me bummed out but the evening sleep will hopefully fix that. I will need to shovel quite a bit to get the wagon out but the s60 (despite awd) is staying put. Too deep...
