XM655 in the snow.

Postby Snapper » Fri Jan 18, 2013 11:44 pm

With snow preventing me from going to work in a car I decided to walk. 10 miles each way! Well it seemed like a good idea at first but 3 hours each way was a bit much.....

However one benefit was that I was able to catch a few shots of XM655 in the snow...

What a Great Set, Clive :ymapplause:

(I have a Cousin Clive, btw.....
Not a common name in the USA)

It's nice to see her all tucked-in
in that weather, but I Dream of
655 under a ROOF in wintertime :D

Some day, perhaps......

Next to 558??????????

Naw, never happen.....

Thank You!

I like to do my planning retroactively!

I agree with Dan...we don't see many (in the snow shots) as for undercover....we've
been there before. [-x

RHV and I made a brief visit today to make sure everything was ok. It didn't look too bad, but we removed some of the accumulated snow from the elevons just in case.

Hope the weather is better next weekend so we can get back to work.
