Normally we start getting snow for winter around Thanksgiving. So this is the week. Today it snowed, just a bit. One year, a few years ago, it started snowing Dec 5th, and didn't stop until April. Every day we got snow. We all had trouble figuring out where to put the extra snow when we shoveled our sidewalks and driveways. Back then I was commuting 50 miles one way for my job. The roads, luckily, were plowed. But one thing I really rely on in the winter time are my snow tires. They really make a difference in how my car handles (and my car handles well to begin with). Today my husband put on my winter tires, all four of them. I am ready for the snow.
