Snow Caked Airbox

Has anyone else gotten snow packed into their airbox?

As I was driving from NH to Southern MA today in a mild snow storm my check airfilter light came on. When I pulled over to check it out, I found snow packed inside the air box. Can this be prevented?

I got a cold air intake. Tired of running multiple filters in the winter time.

Lets just say not quite stock.

WOW, I can't believe the fix for it is let it thaw out. I would be getting me another intake that doesn't do it, from Ford, or aftermarket.

On a side note... DO NOT try to thaw it out in a microwave. I know it sound stupid, but I was 75mls from camp down a bush road and 140mls from a dealership. It was an emergency fix that didnt work.
