Gator in the Snow

It snowed and snowed this winter. And in between the snows, it never fully melted off. We went for three full months without seeing the ground at our house. Occassionally, though, the sun would melt the top layer, then it would freeze hard at night. So one day Colby decided to get out the gator and see if it would drive on top of the snow. It did stay on top, but couldn't get any traction, so he drove in some siding screws into the tires for the "studded snow tire" effect. That worked fine as long as the snow was still hard and frozen. But as soon as it started getting rotten and packy it just picked it all up and made four big snowballs around the gator. But for this day, the kids were THRILLED!! March 16, 2008.
