Ah yes the proverbial April Snow. When I was growing up in Wy (just south of
Montana for those geographically challenged) it snowed every April. My da is
a CPA and always took a trip right after tax season, and it always snowed.
One year I took the Ford station wagon out to the grocery store just to get
some Hershey's Chocolate Chips to make cookies and I got the wagon major
league stuck in a drift. Burnt out reverse in the auto tranny trying to get
it unstuck. Well I just got my license that year, took FOREVER to pay off
the $750 repair and tow. Well it seemed like forever anyway ;-).

BTW cool plates David.
