Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Oh I wish I had that picture. My sister's Volvo parked outside in her driveway...got shoveled out and she hops in and starts it...or tries. It's trying to turn over but nothing's happening.

Time to look under the hood and behold, the entire engine compartment was packed right to the firewall with that dry, white, wispy stuff, only the wind blowing in her grill compacted it. The way her house and barn are situated, the wind is focused and screams through the gap, and she was parked facing windward.

Her engine was just ruined. Her husband got out the blow dryer and extension cord and melted the snow in his equally packed engine compartment before trying to start his Isuzu.
