Hence the reason why I didn't say "everyone", Sparky. Are you saying doctors and nurses never call in sick Barring my ER nurse friend, I can't think of a single friend or family member that MUST be at work during a snow storm or ice storm.

Your example of black ice can happen whether there is snow on the ground or not, as a matter of fact it usually happens after the snow has melted during the day and re-froze at night.
Black ice must work differently in the NE. Black ice in the Midwest generally forms from freezing drizzle and on bridges which freeze before other road surfaces do. This generally happens when it's in the 33-34 degree range and raining/misting. Winter tires won't save you when you enter a bridge at any speed and need to turn. Keep dreaming.

Seriously man, stop posting bad info or...

Stop failing at the interwebz.
Not all of us live in areas that see enough snow to necessiate the need for winter/snow tires. That's a fact. Seriously man, if you want to debate this topic further, I'll be happy to do it in a seperate thread
