My Poor BOX5TR...

So I live in SF, and am not used to this kind of thing happening... but I took a weekend trip to my cabin in Tahoe for some boarding - in comes snow storm after snow storm.. I spin out on the freeway... car gets buried under snow (note: the pic shows the car after a couple hours of some digging...), the front bumper got scratched up and needs repainting, and the windshield wipers are stuck and not moving/working.

Needless to say, I was stupid for bringing my car up to the snow... but I had no idea it was going to snow so bad... arg!

Wow! Looks like it could have been much worse on that off road excursion!
