Northeast Kansas experienced a snowfall beginning Tuesday morning ending Wednesday evening resulting in 12 to 13 inches of snow. Winds caused drifting in areas. Schools and businesses were closed both days.
It was Wednesday- Feb 6, 2014 that I had the opportunity to give my new Honda AWD a go. And she sure went! Well I did have a bit of moment. In the bottom left image above, my husband moved my car to the yard. Snow drifts blocked the Honda in the drive way. By parking the Honda in the yard, I had a better chance of picking up momentum that I would need to make it out to the black top. The top left image is the view left of driveway. The top right image is right of drive way. Normally I turn left, however the drifts were greater to the left. As I gave the Honda gas, I pulled out and made it just around the corner. The snow was tall enough that the bottom of vehicle was pushing snow and eventually I had to stop. Walked back to house for the shovel. Dug out from under the wheels and proceeded to drive. We made it through. My last car would have never even made it out of the driveway. I really like my new Honda!
