I put off my winters because I believe that my almost new all seasons will get me through the next month.

Hope that it pays off.

Harping back to my post 2 posts ago, I was wrong.

I had a set of snow tires and was being lazy. We had 2 18" snow storms in 36 hours early December, it was awesome.

I drove to work the first day of the storm as I normally drive (like a jerk) and all of the turns were very slick.

I (thankfully) didn't hit anything or anyone but I could have been in so much more control had I had my blizzacks on.

I ended up dragging my jack into the snow and doing a winter tire changeover while it was snowing.

The next commute in was so much better, I had all the traction I could reasonably ask for.

I really shouldn't have put it off, now the question is, when should I switch back?

I have put off doing any major car work on the vehicles that currently run and drive. I am a bit concerned I will get something apart and create a problem I can't fix with tools, parts, supplies on hand.

The FCP coolant tank and stainless brake line set came a day late (FEDEX problem) and took the wind of getting that thing back on the road. Instead of working on it today went to Costco to avoid the line on Saturday. Hoping for tomorrow.

Almost Easter and still haven't switched back to the all seasons I have. Turns out I'm just lazy. Oh this also does not put me in good light but my low washer fluid message is still yelling at me.
