Default Er, what happened to winter?

Thoughts?
I took my snowboard rack off last night and I'm considering putting the 17's back on to save tread on my winters. What the heck is going on? So much for my seasons pass...

I never believe in season pass especially when I'm not an avid boarder... as for going back to 17s, that crossed my mine other than the fact that anywhere east of the Rockies is still experiencing "winter"

Roads are still dirty/salty too. That's one of my main justifications for running winters.

65 series tires are comfy.
That's my reason for running stockers.

My justification for running 16's is that...I don't have 17's.

Yeah, I think winter this year got fast-forwarded. I already see some flowers blooming. Well, at least it's good for our business!

You forgot the part about the crappy hockey team

I expect it to become winter again soon. We are only one month into it, remember.

Fog all day at UBC, topped with a dose of single digit termperature.
Sounds like a Vancouver winter to me.

Winter lasted like 3 weeks, everyone said it was going to be a harsh winter. They were right, they just never said how long it was going to be.

I still run around cheering for the Canucks. It didn't help that the bastards beat us twice in a weekend last year though.
