Winter Cruising

The new snow tires are great!  They grab the road so well, it feels like driving on a clean, dry surface.


  1. I've been hesitating to get any because my car is rather old, and how long will I be able to use them? But you make an excellent case to buy some even for one winter. I get the lovely impression of you zipping around enjoying life on icy Montana roads!

  2. ZIP.....Aye....get up...don't wildcat! I wanna see a big ole snow angel!

  3. Mary, I know how you feel, but they are worth it. And in Montana you can leave them on until May 31, if that helps. Mine don't make much noise, and they only add a little bit of drag. If I didn't have them I would definitely stay at home more often.

    ZIP...I might need some liquid motivation for a snow angel. I can't get too excited about flopping in the snow when it's none degrees out. That'll make you get up and do a fish wildcat all the way back to the house.

  4. Hi Cliff,

    There is no way I would be up here without snow tires. Glad you got a set.

    When I was 17 I nearly slid off a cliff in my car because I didn't have them. I was going 5 miles an hour around a bend and it was so icy the damn thing just kept going. I was saved by a snow burm and probably a very busy guardian angel lol.

    And thanks for that last comment, that was really nice of you to say.


  5. Oh and those beautiful snow pictures. They are just making me feel colder. Can you put some warm Texas photographs up please?


  6. Great story, Laura, especially since it ended well. I bet it was a scaaaaary feeling in that slow-motion slide toward a cliff.

    Sorry, but I don't have any good digital pictures of Texas. I lived in an apartment in downtown Dallas, and when I wasn't working, I was up here. You have the warm blog. That potato soup looked like it could make you slap your mama.
