The other day we had our first reasonably good snowfall (5-6 inches) and the same day I saw an online news? story that essentially said "on the first snow day every Canadian will have an accident". I had a lot of things to do that day and put nearly 300 K on the car and I did not have an accident. I feel really bad that I have let down my country and will try harder next time.

p.s. I have a brain and snow tires (not neccessarily in that order)

I hear ya Bob! You wouldn't believe the shipshow we get out here when we get our annual "Snowmegeadon!"

Nobody has snow tires or knows how to drive in it! We make the news every year.

We've had two days of no school so far this term.  It doesn't concern me, so I don't pay a whole lot of attention.... I think both were for icy conditions when rain in the afternoon froze overnite. 

Snow?? ... I've been told that what we really have to watch out for are  those pesky vehicles that materialize from vapour.... especially when there is no other vehicle at/near an intersection. cheeky

I'm well aware of the stats re. the benefits of winter tires, but so far I've managed quite nicely [and apparently safely??] with all-seasons.   However, in light of a remote possibility of having to drive to B.C. this winter I put a pair of winter ones [mountain/snowflake symbol] on the rear of the '08 Trailblazer this fall.  [It likely won't be necessary, but if I'm stopped I'll just pretenda I no-a speaka da Henglish.  wink ]

Sheesh,, (no outrage intended) ,, and here I thought M/S stood for “Mud & Snow”.
This place is a rich depository of valuable information.
