|Kinda pretty, innit?|
We're only a few inches of snowfall away from the snowiest winter since they've been keeping records in Indy, the current record being held by the winter of '82-'83 with fifty-some-odd inches of snow.
In previous winters there have been periods where the Bimmer was snowbound for a couple days at a stretch, but nothing like this; the alley has been effectively impassable for the Zed Drei on its summer skins for several weeks. Living in the city and working from home, this isn't that big of a deal; there's a grocery store, a bodega, and several restaurants in easy walking distance, and I could always take the bus. Still, I am so thankful I got the Subie when I did.
(I think I've remarked before that, having had my own wheels since I was a teenager, I get claustrophobic if my car's in the shop. I don't know how, say, a Manhattanite deals with the inability to just grab your car keys and go, wherever and whenever you want to.)
