Default Must be me...

top and ever'thin' came off Saturday evening, and I thought, it's been so nice for such a long time I can get away with just the bikini top for a week right? They said it was SUPPOSED to snow Wednesday, but they've said that a couple of times in the last couple of months and we got nothing here in Golden. Well Sunday Monday and Tuesday looked good, but then I tempted fate some more and got my new Chacos in. Well sho' nuff it snowed just to spite me. I guess if I had left well enough alone and just had the bikini top I would've been alright, but I had to push the envelope you know?

Anyway been driving the past two days with Gore-Tex pants on, down or softshell jacket. I thought, "even if it DOES snow, the hard doors and the bikini top will protect it good enough..." well turns out if I park on the street facing the correct legal direction the wind blows from behind the truck...so I get what's in the pic - snow on seats, on dash, in bed... Anyway, just thought it was funny/ironic/part of owning a 40! :fing:

PS I should've gotten a pic on Wednesday...I had about 3 inches on EVERYTHING (the seats had about 1.5 inches apiece)

Try a tarp when you're parked. Cheap and effective.
