    Is this impressive?

    In the dark, carrying down a flight of stairs while wearing 6 inch heels, 4 tires with rims, a phone, 3 brownies and a pot of coffee?

    You need to move to an area where you DO NOT have to change tires twice a year, and NO basements to carry they down into if you should decide to do it.

    I can't do that, how else would I get my excercise? Sheeze.

    I got to admit carrying the 4 Jeep tires down a flight of stairs in the dark, is a bit much, especially, in stilettos, talking & texting on the phone, eating brownies, & drinking coffee. I might have to put off texting while carrying the Jeep tires. I might still be able to manage touching up my mascara though.

    The other car has much smaller tires.

    HJ,

    Lets talk weather next July. Meanwhile, OK, I admit it, it is a little greasy out there. Last year for my current studs. All 4 get swapped out next fall. (I'm not talking about those internet studs, by the way - tires, I'm talking tires.)

    I thought studded tires were illegal?

    Not in my state, but they do have to be off by April 15th.

    Ice is why our highways look like gravel roads. The private dirt road I live on (gravel would be an upgrade) is one long slanting ice cube this time of year and without studs you sometimes can't get up it, going down can be a wild ride.

    My driveway in snow needs 4wd with 4 wheel chains, and a false move of 2' puts you
    220' down a 75' slope into a river.

    Although you would likely be lucky enough for a tree to stop you first.

    Studded snow tires in Connecticut permitted Nov. 15-April 30.

    Let's see now. I think we needed studded tires on Dec. 27, 2004, but they had to be off by Dec. 28. Why do you want to talk about weather in July? By then it will be a balmy, but dry, 115 degrees. Talk to me when YOUR temperature is 90 and the humidity is 98. In your area, I imagine Summer is from July 5, to July 7, so you have to make an appointment to get a sun tan, during those hours.
