Lol I don't think the engine will be able to get any air in that to be able to turn over. Climb in the back and set it in neutral and have a buddy with a tow just pull it out.

No worry, I just clean up the front and driver side a bit, put it in D and had a lot of fun on the roads.

Wow! Looks like fun. How much snow did you get?

At least it doesn't look like a wet snow.

Around 50-60 cm (~20") of powder snow.

We got over half a foot here in Michigan. I am so glad I got the xi. Nothing beats being able to cruise easily through the snow.

Toronto issuing a weather warning at -15C, Winnipeggers just shook their heads, zipped our coats a little more and went out into the -40C winter.
