    ended friday morning

    Duratrac's where still outstanding, never got stuck once, many others did

    no need for sand bags, old man winter provided enought weight in the back
    had to actually shovel some off so i could see out the back window.

    it was so bad, twice i saw snow plow's having to be pulled out.
    But they were very busy with this.

    i think you will be very happy with the Duratracs

    had to go down some unplowed roads for work, cars stuck all over the place
    was alittle wery on some of them, but had no problems getting through

    At least then you have a reason to cuddle up to a nice warm body in bed instead of the "Get off me you're boiling me alive!"

    did you air down any Skistory? what PSI are you set at? i'm running 34# for normal driving but will most likely drop to 28-30# once the white stuff starts flying around here.

    Thanks for posting that... I have been trying to convince my wife I need Duratracs and she keeps telling me to wait... After seeing your pics and the forecast that we are going to beat Buffalo in snowfall AGAIN this year, I think I finally sold her on them... lets see if I can get her to get them for me for Christmas...

    A lot of us in the suburbs around Buffalo get way more snow than the City of Buffalo does.

    For those who aren't familiar with lake snows, i remember one time where in the part of the town i live in had over 2 feet while the NW corner of the same town has grass showing. That was a more extreme case, but true story...

    Cold air blows over the warm lake and the snow bands can drop several inches an hour. Just depends what direction the wind is blowing...
