Another day working from home due to heavy snowfall overnight and throughout the day. We had about 2 inches of snow last night - on top of the 3 inches we had last week. That brings the total to 5 inches (see the picture!).

The Mercedes has been stuck on ice twice in a row - both times in the works car park. Snow, slush, ice and no grit just completely flummoxes the Mercedes; a complete contrast to my 400 bhp Skyline GTR I drove last year which did not even bat an eyelid at deeper snow or more ice, but then that has one of the best four wheel drive systems of any production car. When the Mercedes wasn't spinning its rear wheels, it was locking up the front. How do you go down a hill slowly in first when you have an auto?

Automatic cars + rear wheel drive + snow = not a good idea!

Anywho, here are a few pictures from today.

You can see more pictures of the snow in my snow gallery.
