So, how have all you folks who didn't think you needed winter tires enjoyed driving the past few days?
I wasn't in The Big Smoke on Saturday, but from what I heard - well, who sez Ottawa has the world's largest skating rink?
By Sunday evening some suburban side-streets still looked like they'd been prepped by Zambonis instead of snowplows.
Today, another ten cm or so of 'global warming' is falling here at Kenzie World Headquarters; a trip into town to gather up better drugs (this damned cough is still killing me...) proved that a lot of people out here don't have them either.
Funny; after you've smoked them away from the light, proving you've got way better grip than they do (my Hot Rod du Jour, the cute little Fiat 500, does have winter tires) you wonder why the think once they do get up to speed they can cruise right on past you.
Or do they get better grip when braking than when accelerating?...
Of course, if they did think at all, they'd have winter tires on.
Oh yes, and to the driver of that dark blue Dodge Caravan pulling in to the Milton Mall at around 6:10 this evening - your vehicle has a rear window wiper; any chance maybe you might switch it on once in a while?
