was seeing some decent flurry action out here around 4ish, been on and off all day.

TN is in the 80's, not sure how much gloating I can take from my dad before I snap

I miss warmth already

no snow in the ville....

The right way is not always the popular and easy way. Standing for right when it is unpopular is a true test of moral character

Driving down Ogden it was like a white out... For about 30 seconds. Then it turned to small hail.
Endless- Don't feel bad. I washed and waxed my car last Thursday and it poured like hell that night.

^How much wax do you need? Put a string on that thing and you'd have a candle.

i just drove through my first snow of the season after leaving a friend's house. it was that nasty sticky wet snow. i was pissed driving home, thinking my headlight had gone out cause i had NO light on the left side. i pulled in the garage and started laughing when i turned around. i forgot to wipe the lenses off before i got in my car!

stupid beginning of the season adjustments...

Spikes work better

Or just be very gentle on the throttle and don't lean too much. Don't forget to grab the engine to thaw your hands out

Ride smart... stupid hurts.
