Pic goes without saying... Snow in mid-April! Already have the summer tires on, luckily it was melting on the roads right away. Anyone else have the beast out for the year and have unexpectedly encountered the white stuff?

I feel for you man. We had some flurries over the last week but luckily, it didn't stick around so I gave my beast its first hand wash of the year after throwin on my now matte black style 65 wheels and tires. Feels good to get off the winters! I've learned over the years to watch the forecasts extra carefully in April as I have been burnt in the past getting caught in my summers on fresh and slick snow. A very dangerous situation! You hit the gas and you get nothing but DSC blinking and the car hardly moving. Once you get moving, you can barely turn nor stop. Not my idea of fun in the beast.

EDIT: had to add in a picture as it is rare that a Canadian can brag about having better weather.

I got really fed up of the stuff in Dec/Jan, not used to getting that much and I'm glad to see it's gone for the year. Fingers crossed.

That's very possible...a snowboarding friend in Colorado tells me it snows hardest in March-April...the last bit of fresh powder for the slopes...

Roads are almost dry here - although there is still lots of snow left on the ground. High 40s and sunny, t-shirt weather!
Beast is still in the garage, will be waiting a few more weeks for the roads to clean up a bit more around town.
Although I may be tempted to get it out in a week or so for some highway driving, the highways out of town are all dry clean.
