Today is our one pleasant day of the week. It's sunny and mild. Temps already at 60 F.

I have my all-weathers on my all-wheel drive and 4-40 lb boxes of cat litter, shovels, blankets, fire-making tools and emergency food. Also extra hats, boots and gloves...jumper cables and a tow hook.

I'm ready!!!

Are all weather tires good enough where you live? Here we call those 3 season tires. In fact, by law we have to have winter tires on by 15 December. They stay flexible at much lower temperatures.

I have never had problems with the all-weathers. We have chains if we need them for hill climbing.

The shovels and jumper cables are in a hideaway. The cat litter is purchased on at a time and tied down over the back wheels, the rest has it's own well packed storage box, that gets pulled out each year. I believe in preparedness, since in 1979 I got stuck in the snow overnight.

We went from fall to winter overnight. Its WINTER here. Still snowing (dang it!) but its the light feathery stuff and its just bitingly cold. High today of -12C, wind chill around -19 or -20. I broke out the winter coat, scarf and mitts today. Filled my tires with air (they go low when its this cold) and I'm wearing fleece pants and a sweatshirt. Wow. Fast transition this year!

I'm not looking forward to that time for us. Still at least a month away. We get an average of about 65" of snow a year. Long range forecast for this winter is warmer temps and less precipitation. I say "Yay!" save a few bucks on heating.
