Good point... ah hell, I've lost my link with my boonie background and now Im thinking like a 'city boy'...

That's OK if you ARE a "city boy".  Could be hurtful if you're back in the boonies.

I have heard of a car that got ran over one year at an army base . And the park car owner got nothing out of it. Due to the fact it was snowing bad out and he was illegally parked. Makes you think, huh?

Stupid Honda...  ;D

SNIC here stands for Senior Numpty In Charge...no snow here...mind you it was a bit chilly this morning at 20 degs and foggy out.  But that has burned off now... :blotto:
Don't worry all, I know what I'm coming home to, 20cm of snow and a wonderful skating rink they call the driveway.  Wife already had a oopsy with the car and some ice.

Been snowing here off and on for a few weeks now, but last night we got about 5 inches overnight. Went to sleep with the previous snowfall all but completly melted, woke up for work this morning and was very surprised.

Yup - lots of snow, but temperatures hovering right around 0 with occasional highs of 5 to 6.

Snow tires....absolutely. Had all seasons on  my truck last year during the gong show storm here in Dec (30 or 40 cm fell in the matter of 3 or 4 hours and paralysed the city...7 hours to do a 20 minute drive home!) and I had a lot of trouble with the all seasons. We're getting a lot of snow this year so far and more today...they are working a charm. As others have stated all 4 are necessary for maximum traction. I'm driving up to Ottawa in early January to begin my exile...uh IR.... and I'm thinking that these will give me piece of mind driving through the snow belt of northern NB and that area of Que between Edmudston and Riviere de Loup.

Ctrl-reload or Shift-Refresh (Firefox/IE) should make them show.

Some will likely still see them in February, caching seems to be a problem in some places. :)

P.S. You may want to shield your eyes on the reload.
