Default Dude, get a snow shovel

On my way to town I came a across an older if not antique car buried in the snow. What a shame... I think he just gave up on winter.

LOL! Our Honda will look like that occasionally. It stays that way until the snow melts enough to get it out. While we have a shovel, it doesn't get used all that often. Instead we'll just drive the 4x4 until the cost of the extra gas gets to our pocketbook or until the sun melts the snow (usually within a week). I'm getting too old for shoveling heavy, wet snow.

Looks like a good reason to head south for a while

make sure the people living there haven't passed away... it happens, an
older person dies in their home but isn't noticed until their home's
upkeep has diminished.

That is a good idea, though. Thanks

Thanks, SharpShotGal! Yes, "the snow was mocking the shape of the car", good observation... we just got some more snow after this photo was taken yesterday... it just never ends... we're expecting to have between 5 to 5.5 months of solid snow cover this year. Thanks for your kind comments, nice to hear from ya. Ned

By the way, this photo was taken with a FLASH... I should have slightly decreased the flash power, I took the photo in a hurry.
