Vegas is still cold. I am doing my part by spraying as much aerosol as I can.

I think it's been a year without winter pretty much. It was pretty good, but some days were bad and I need snow tires so I got that for just a few trips. I'll never drive without them if I can help it. They brought peace of mind and never having to worry about sliding off the highway, I don't know why everyone thinks you don't need them. If you're a man and you're going to just drive out there no matter what you need them.

You do need winter the curb down disease,, hey babe why this is happening with the Coronavirus.

As i recall you do a good bit of rural driving seeking out small casinos and bars with older style slot machines, so yes I would agree you need snow tires irrespective of actual or expected conditions, just as you need a blanket, water and survival bar in the car as well despite there being warm weather.

No that's not me. I just have no fear rain or snow, too many times I'm driving as fast as it seems safe losing control every 10 minutes and seeing 5 cars off the road, I'll never let that be me. The last time I almost went into a ditch and some pine trees before gaining control back, and the time before that, I couldn't get up a steep icy hill and it was a nightmare. Thank you google maps for that, I knew it was wrong making that turn.

Why not just avoid all of that and live some place where it doesn't snow?

I've been trying to talk my wife into that for years. She HATES winter, but apparently she hates the thought of moving more than that.

Clearly you are valuing your wife higher than that of avoiding cold. You may want to re-evaluate your choice.

It is supposed to be 95 here tomorrow and I am hosting a swim and BBQ party. I am so sad that I don't live there.
