On Thursday night, Spokane, WA got dumped on with 17" of snow in less than 24 hours. The city was paralyzed - schools closed, government buildings closed, etc. On Friday, we left Missoula, MT and drove to Spokane to pick up some kids and visit family. The roads over the passes were snow covered and icy - but we never slipped or slid. In Spokane, we cruised through unplowed streets and made it safely to Grandma's house.
This morning, we got up and ran some errands around the city. While we were cruising down an unplowed side-street, a 4x4 Suburban rounded the corner off the plowed road and promptly got stuck. Never one to pass up on an opportunity to help another, we cruised through the deeper snow on near the curb to go around the Suburban and then backed up to him. After a brief conversation, I hooked up the tow rope between the vehicles and pulled him back out onto the paved road.
The Commander is fantastic in the snow and I can't wait to get out there again and play in it. Too bad Missoula only has 2 inches... boo.
