Never been happier to clean snow off of a car!


Finally snow! Bad picture due to darkness and poor parking lot lighting.



Only problem is that I still have my summer tires on. Michelin xi3's go on next week for sure.

Just drove home, and wow! Summer tires in the snow is a horrible idea. I would imagine driving a FWD car on an ice rink would be similar.

Anything over 2.5-3k rpm would spin tires, unless I accelerated VERY slow. As for turning? Refer back to my ice rink comparison.

Funny because last winter I used Yoko All-seasons and did perfectly fine. Stepping down to summers changes everything. Can't wait to see how snow tires do!

Snow tires work wonders. I actually have to try to break my car loose at low speeds in turns. It's pretty amazing.

I had to go to work today even though the office was closed due to the so-called blizzard. Mischievously, I had my way with the parking lot.

Yesterday's little snow storm, and the first day on my snow tires.






Icicles on my fog lights.

Even after most of it melts, some gravel roads are still kinda covered.
More snow Saturday!
