Woke up to this:









Least my dog was happy.


No? Ok, maybe this is better


Take that old man winter!


And now here's my dog with snow on his head


So yeah. Guess I'm a dumb dumb head for not putting the Blizzaks on yesterday, but the lake effect snow watch came up in the mid evening then went to warning status by bedtime. Woops.

Hehe - thanks for the laugh The last pic (oh, and the one before it) are classic.

Drive safe. Originally from FL, eh? My fiancee (who moved up here) knows just how you feel ... or she will, when we have our first snowstorm in the East!

Wheels, tires, fluids and roof-mounted bike/ski rack. That's enough mods for me!

Originally from MA, actually. I've seen my fair share of snow, but not in the previous 17-18 years, haha. I did drive around in it a lot earlier this year, but that was when I was on a job taking me all over the country, not in my car. I'm not going to bother driving until it clears. My summer tires are basically 17" hockey pucks right now.

It's coming down a lot harder now. This is so awesome, lol.

And Nealio--you know you wish you were here 8D

Dude I'm not athletic. I just take photos of other people doing things athletic.

But snowboarding would be a pretty sweet way to experience my first broken bone. lol

You haven&#39;t lived til you&#39;ve changed tires in the snow...


Or strap on a board or two sticks and bomb down a snow covered mountain! I need to go skiing this winter.

So I went out and drove to a tire place to get my Blizzaks put on and I gotta tell you--the SPTs handled even the snow and slush wonderfully. Because I have a deathwish or get some sort of twisted enjoyment out of flirting with danger, I tested out the braking and handling on a backroad and I honestly couldn&#39;t distinguish the performance in 30 slush from 90 heat. This is after 20k miles, 3 autocrosses, and 39 drag runs on these tires. Even under full acceleration they didn&#39;t slip, though they did yesterday but that was going up pretty steep hill. Car shuddered pretty bad with mild throttle, lol.

I&#39;m 100% satisfied with this tire and can&#39;t recommend it enough.
