A MEETING OF THE SUMMER TIRES CLUB

I am taking today off .

I couldn’t find enough good stuff that I wanted to post, so I’m waiting until tomorrow.

Had to do some running around after work too. The ODDLING had her boxing lesson so I had to go get her after practice. Seems that I actually HAVE to take her back…

There was a meeting of THE SUMMER TIRES CLUB Monday morning. Here in the booming metropolis of Guelph, Ontario¬† Canada, we had about 10 cm (4″) of snow. This fair city decided to only send the plows out after the last flake of snow had fallen. I shoveled the driveway at 6:45 am and again at about 10:00 am. Not a big deal. The roads were OK if you drove safely. I did some driving around to get a few things and watched the idiots trying to drive up hills in their summer tires, floor the accelerator and go sideways down the road and generally prove to the world that they are lacking any level of intelligence. I took it easy driving as I ate my popcorn and watched THE SUMMER TIRES CLUB perform its’ show.

Anyhow, we’ll see you tomorrow.

    I thought snow tires were mandatory in Canada December – March.

      As far as I know, they are only mandatory in Quebec. The rest of Canada relies on…all season tires. A compromise for all seasons but not really the good for winter.

    You would figure that the northern half of the contentment would know how to drive in the snow & ice. I’m from Florida but live in Virginia. I had to learn how to drive on that white stuff. The Wifey and I both drive lifted Jeeps with big, wide mud tires. They are awesome in mud, rocks, sand & even snow. Nothing I have found other than caution and patients works on ice. Sounds like some good entertainment though. Grab a lawn chair and a “Founders” and enjoy the show.

    Whenever it snows more than 6 inches in Toronto, the mayor calls in the army.

    I always know when it has snowed while lying in bed. I wake up and if I hear the frantic scream of tires on icy pavement as my neighbour goes up a shallow grade to get out of his lane and keeps it floored till it melts the snow I know it has snowed. He has never bought winter tires thinks they are a waste of money.

    Oh dear! We had rain the past two days here (I know rain in So Cal..shocking..lol) and it’s been interesting driving. On the way to work I saw multiple meetings of I can’t drive when it rains club. People…

    Anyways, boxing lessons? Cool! Is the Oddling stinging like a bee and flying like a butterfly?

    Have a good one,

    Also being from Guelph, I can attest to the great number of nitwit drivers on our streets. The number increases exponentially though when you cross into the Region of Waterloo. Those drivers are down right, bizarre!
