Ice, Ice, Baby


Last night, we had an ice storm. I had to drive through it to take my last class of the semester. To celebrate the end of the semster, and to burn up one of my remaining personal days before the end of the month, I took today off.

So, I went out to play in the snow.

I love my studded tires. The road in the picture was pretty well treated, but some of the side streets were still smooth as glass. The tires do not do as well in deep snow, but that’s really not what they’re intended for.

For the benefit of Google:
Nokian Hakkapeliitta W106 are good on ice.
