So from his album Frostbite the song Snowed In (Warning- this is not a coffee song):
Added a little more distance to this one. Nice weather – mainly sunny with some wind. Real mix of conditions. Some mud and soft gravel, clear and rutted glare ice, crunchy snow.
I have wanted to post this for awhile but I am never here in the shop on Monday, but listening to the lyrics it still works….
