I dont even think you really need extra weight in the trunk. 20k miles in the winter going strong! I pass trucks and suv's all the time like they are standing still just because of my blizzaks.

The year of the never ending winter. Took the car for a ride Sunday to check the ramp and ice coverage at one my local lakes. Bummer no open water ice fisherman every where, looks like bass fishing season might not start till April this year.

I am so sick of looking at my car under it's cover it is driving me nuts. So sick of winter. I am from North Carolina so this PA weather does not suit me well.

MY three Harleys my beloved 2012 SS that I call Orange Thunder and a 9HP Sears snow blower all sit in my garages. I hate to say it, but the snow blower has gotten all of the wheel time in the the last three months. My wife and I are going to try to escape to my sisters tomorrow, she lives in Daytona FLA. Taking the GMC, at least we will be warm!

I've spent most of the winter in the San Diego area. I make plans to get back to KC for the week & on the top of my list of "to-do's" was take the Camaro out. What happens? I end up renting a Jeep 4x4 due to the snow/sleet. Ugh! No way the Camaro can come out this trip. Now I have to wait until the end of April.

Ohio's weather has been doing a number on my four banger as well, poor thing sounds like the engine is trying to jump out of the car in 10 and under degrees. The Camaro is still hibernating in the garage. Glad those that do drive theirs in the winter love their tires but those of us that don't winter drive ours could care less about your tires and are more concerned with when this crap will be over and roads cleaned and repaired. Come on May!

Before the first snowflake fell this season, I was done.

I despise winter for all reasons, and this has been one of the worst.

Think I heard the news guy say last night this is the 21st snow, sleet or ice fall of the season. This seriously sucks.

Come on spring, and better yet... summer.

As a teacher, I will take as much snow as possible. Give me those days off!

I'm just happy we had enough of a break for me to get mine out to T&T performance to get some stuff done, that way when it is finally nice, I'm ready to go!

This would have been a yr to take it off the road completely.
Very little miles driven this winter.
