Theres not a sodding drop of snow up my way apart from a bit of damp slush :'(

I have so many snow related builds as well I would love to crack them out for the wintery wonderland lol.

The Volvo loader had some "differenital issues" - it would be better if it had diff locks - some wheel spin but after about 30 seconds the brand new batteries got too cold. It has quite a strong scoop on the Volvo - one of the better Lego Models that actually performs quite well.

The Arocs truck was well buried! Only about 4-5cm snow - the photo was staged in my front porch as the snow was too deep elsewhere. But too deep for the truck. In real life would have needed some serious chains.....

If the Volvo had diff locks and the batteries did not suffer from the cold it should have performed quite well!

Shame I haven't gotten around to building 42069 - Extreme Adventure!

(Snow related but kind of OT)...those Lego Ninjago & Friends Magazines that Grant kindly gave to my kids at the Dublin meet-up were total lifesavers over the last few days!  We had no power, so the magazines kept them entertained for a few hours at least!

Lisa,
Sorry to hear you had no power, but it's great that the magazines kept the children entertained!  I don't have a snow post either as instead of building with Lego bricks, we were building an igloo with snow blocks :)
