My Boxster saw snow!

To some of you this may not be a big deal, but here in New Orleans seeing snow is a weird thing. I went to go to work today and my car was in the driveway covered in snow!

Nice pictures, the one driving in particular.
The only time mine sees snow is when I open the garage door other than that snow is pretty common north of the 49th.

A hurricane and snow in the same year? It must be the end of days!

I'd like to see a picture of you also Love Bunny. I'd actually like to see pictures of everyone on this board so I can put a face to the names. I don't suppose that would go over to well would it? If not, Merry Christmas to you all that I have had the pleasure of corresponding with this year.

I can't drive in those boots, so no pics of me driving in them. I can't find any pictures of me wearing them either, but here's a pic of me and some friends. I'm the one in the middle.


We get snow so rarely here that it's a big event, even that little bit, which was really like driving in rain. Here's a silly little video some people in our office did this morning because of the snow.

Yep, they are pretty expensive boots, but worth every penny.

LoveBunny,

All I can say is "Whoa mam-ma!" You are one beautiful woman that has great taste in automobiles. I like the YouTube video with snow on the palm trees!

Thank you!

And maxferran, when I was driving downtown I saw tons of people everywhere taking pictures. We get so excited here about something that is just a normal occurence in other cities. I'm wondering tomorrow if it'll be icy though and dangerous to drive. All I know is right now I am FREEZING! I have on sweats and a robe and fuzzy booties and the heat is cranked up and I still can't get warm.

See, this is why I still hadn't regret my purchase of this car since I knew there would be awesome people like you.

You opt for the 997 turbo wheels on your box AND you have great taste in shoes? This makes 9/10 guy's head explode.

IMO, 5-spoke wheels = stilletos = yummy.

I'm still looking for my carrera lights dammit.

I can't feel sorry for you... I've already used my snowblower four times since Thanksgiving...

It' ironic too... last night we played you guys in football and Harry Connick Jr, is playing in Chitown currently as well. Even trade! We get your people up here and you get some of our snow! haha.

Hey LB, what kind of tires do you run? I hope you weren't cheating death driving in the snow on PS2's! And I'm betting that you probly didn't opt for heated seats...

How come I don't ever see babes like you when I go to lawyers' offices or court?
