How does your Car Look in this Winter Weather?

With the weather as bad as it is here and across the country, I thought it would be fun to see what all of your daily drivers look like in this weather!

I took a couple of pics of my truck last night after the freezing rain let up... This morning before I went to work, there was nearly an inch of ice frozen to the entire truck and the icicles on my mirrors were about a foot long!!! The tires were even covered in ice, with no tread except along the far inside showing! The doors were frozen shut, i had to use 3 large cups of hot water to melt the ice around the door seams and handle just so i could get in!

Little did I know I didn't have to spend a half hour scraping the ice off my windows so I could go to work, because when I got here I saw an email they sent out late yesterday saying that the office would be closed today!

Here are some pics of what my truck looked like last night! Please feel free to show your cars as well!

Red, that reminds me of the Ice Storm here last winter. My G5 had that much ice all over it, too, lol.

EDIT: I mean srsly..that ice storm last winter was insane:
