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?
