    My car under snow this morning

     We have unusually cold weather , broke minus temperatures  records since 1971 for this time of the year.

    During the last 10 years I have lived around here, never saw that much snow so close to the lake ( lake Geneva ) . Having this at the end of november is even more unusual.

    Here are some pics

    I love snow!  1291194426362wow2.gif(mostly because I don't have to deal with it)

    It makes everything look so postcard like.


    Re: My car under snow this morning

    you don't fool me !!! These are spyshots from the upcoming 991 - just have a look at the characteristics of the rear wing...Smiley ...we do not have snow here, but it is bloody cold...


    Re: My car under snow this morning

    Same here, it's -7°c this early in the year it's very unusual... Tonight they're expecting more snow.

    Thx for the pics, always nice to see winter-Porsches!


    Re: My car under snow this morning

     It has not stopped snowing the whole day. On top of what you can see on the pics there is 20 cm more snow .... and it keeps coming

    Likewise in the UK - snow falling much earlier than usual.

    Great photos Gnil..

    Certainly not the same here. It did rain heavily the day before yesterday.1291212372866duck.gif


    Re: My car under snow this morning

    Nice pics Gnil  I just drove home from work through this wonderful snow. Was a fun ride  Amazed how much traction the 911 has, even when it is very slippery and uphill. PSM kicks in sometimes, but no dramas. I guess the new 18" wintertyres are making their fair share of contribution to the effortless drive.

    A new BMW 3-series, with what looked like wintertyres, could not even start at the traffic lights. Spin, spin, spin... and the rear was going sideways until he gave up. Poor guy.

    Re: My car under snow this morning

     I returned from Stockholm on Sunday, and can verify that there was big big snow in the entire city ! 

    Right now in madrid, yesterday snowed a little bit, but it was a playground compared to Sweden ! 

     

    Great pics Gnil !

    Re: My car under snow this morning

    Even here, Victoria BC. We had snow in November, highly unusual seeing as we're so close to the Pacific and surrounded by ocean. It was also record cold last week at -7C

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: My car under snow this morning

    Many thanks for the pics. Its always a great feeling using a 11er as snowmobile, Right now we have a lot of snow in Munich downtown as well and on Wednesday it snowed more or less the whole day.

    Do mean like this?Smiley


    Re: My car under snow this morning

     I exchange my snow for any of the above beaches 

    We have to go back to 1981 to get the same amount of snow around here is so little time.

    Which actually brings me back to the whole "why do you need a SUV like the X5 M" discussion. Smiley Smiley

    Speaking of german streets and snow removal (which is a joke in most cities right now):

     Thats the Cap Cana complex on the east coast. There's a few good hotels on it. If you decide to make the trip let me know so I can give you and your family a proper tour Smiley That goes for anyone from RT.

    It's amazing that the chaos we see on TV (Haiti) is at the same location as this paradise!

    You have to wonder which did more damage to Haiti, the earthquake or the inability to cope with it resulting from the aftermath of decades of a backward dictatorship. Smiley

     Haiti's biggest problem is the unwillingness from both the government and the people to better themselves as a nation. They expect the world to take pity and solve their issues for them when really a lot of those issues are deeply rooted on their own will (or lack of it) to change.

    That answers my question: Haiti's biggest problem is the lack of initiative and infrastructure resulting from decades of living under Papa Doc and Baby(?) Doc. 

    It can't be easy to drag yourself out of the crap by your own bootlaces when you don't have boots. Smiley

    Sorry, didn't mean to veer off topic. Back to the snow. Smiley
