Re: F... winter

Damn, cable just went out. I guess that means that I have to go to work since I've got nothing better to do.

D.C. is covered with snow today. Sitting here at home with a cup of Joe, my laptop, and I'm on the Warpath.

It's a beautiful thing.

4-5 inches is pretty normal for us. We have some snows that are more than a foot every so often. Regardless, everything shuts down around here when it's a couple of inches or more.

Re: F... winter

Well, I made it into work. Of course it's only a 15 minute commute for me under nominal conditions. It wasn't that bad out there, but there sure were people who were driving like it was that bad. But that is his fault for driving a Corvette to work...Dumbass!

I replaced the Dunflops on mine at 16k miles because I couldn't stand them anymore. I put some Nitto Terra Grapplers on it. Had them on for about 36k miles and they have been great.

No it was slush. Dunflops just suck. I looked at them afterwards they hold in all the snow in the tread thus making them ice skates. Worst tires in the world bar none. I don't know anyone that likes them.

I have had many tires in my life and these are by far the worst, it is common knowledge. To be honest I have never inspected my tires in the past for snow because they have always worked well so you maybe right. I have always had great success with Yokes and Bridgestone.

I think there was ice under the snow around here (bwi area). I was driving in the lane and my back would start sliding. I just got new tires so they are not worn. and the parking lot at my work has a thin layer of ice under it. I hate ice.

Re: F... winter

I made it to work okay, it just took longer than normal. Now I'm a little concerned with how the wind will be on the drive home. They were saying it we could have +30mph winds later today, and that sort of thing usually whips my jeep around quite a bit. Should be interesting.

Pick up a fat chick on the way home. The extra weight might keep you from whipping all over the place.

Re: F... winter

Main roads in the DC area are fine. I waited until the snow let up and headed in a few hours late, but the drive was cake. No problem whatsoever. Even the side streets aren't that bad. It hadn't been cold enough before the snow for any type of accumulation on the roads I guess.
