I REALLY hate winter.

I didn't notice any snow in the Amherst area, but we were getting hail off and on from yesterday afternoon into the late night/early morning today. probably pea sized.
Although based on the time of your post I was asleep so it might have had some snow in the air here at that time

I love the snow!! The best time i ever had at my local range was shooting with the snow coming down ever so lightly with nobody else there because of the weather.I was shooting empty shotgun shells at 200 yards with a scoped Bushy varminter at 200 yards just to make it difficult.Give me a pocket warmer with a good pair of Carhardt pants and jacket and i am a happy guy!!

The ONLY thing I like about winter is the sports, which I LOVE and look forward to (skiing, snowboarding, ice skating, and the hunting seasons). Otherwise, I much prefer spring and summer.

Edited for content and clarity of posting intent:

Don't be put in a situation where others might see you as a dumbass and wait til the last minute and the first snowfall to get them put on. I see that all the time around my area. What will happen is that you'll wait too long and you'll wind up being seen as the jerk who wont or can't maintain your car by everyone else who is cursing as you bring traffic behind you to a crawl.

Owning and operating a car requires a certain amount of investment . Yes, people live on limited incomes. My own income is certainly not bottomless, and I don't always have the money for repairs as soon as I might need them. My muffler is probably driving my neighbors crazy right now as it limps its way into the sunset., for instance. I often go to accidents where people use the excuse for their vehicle deficiencies as being that they don't have money for reepairs/ upkeep. Its real simple: as much as people need to get from point A to Point B, if they can't maintain their vehicle properly so that it is safe for both them and the other drivers around them sharing the roadway, it should not be on the road.

Hiram,
Thats about what I have to pay for my 16 inch tires for my pickup. Ouch! I look at it this way, it's worth the cost to ride up higher to be able to look down at all the good looking women..LOL

I don't see where I am being uncivil, either her or elsewhere. I haven't been rude to you by any means. I certainly see harsher words among other posters that draw no mention. Must be who you are that counts then , right?I am simply saying don't be one of those people that rolls around on 4 bald bias ply tires and then holds up traffic because you can't navigate. If your tires are fine, then everything is great. Its the person who doesn't do the preventative maintenance who is the dumbass; perhaps I should clarify that.

In my book, referring to a person as a "dumbass" and a "jerk" in the same post is rude regardless of who it is. If you continue on this path, you will wear out your welcome here. You have been warned.

A nobody.

Where do you guys get your tires? I heard Tirerack on the web is good.
To the guy who uses Blizzaks, how are they on dry roads when theirs no weather?
Oh, I see you're in MN., God bless!

that and the year or 2 before was great. had some driving bans, couldn't go home for thanksgiving. got stuck at home one year at christmas and had to stay an extra few days
biggest problem with snow in Buffalo is that the city of buffalo sucks at cleaning it up. the suburbs wil have it clean in a day (except for the 3 feet in 12 hours type storms) and the city will take 3 or 4

As the post has obviously been taken by more than one person to mean something other than what I intended for it to say, I have edited it.

I still stand by my comment that the original post was not directed to HR as an individual.

I also stand by my follow up post. While we have had our differences of opinion in my 2000 or so posts, I don't need to resort to a personal attack. I believe that the net is a place where rational discourse is possible and personal attacks are not needed.

Your warning is noted but unneccesary.
