Here are the current road conditions over the mountain to the city:
CHAINS ARE REQUIRED ON ALL VEHICLES EXCEPT 4-WHEEL-DRIVE VEHICLES WITH SNOW TIRES ON ALL 4 WHEELS FROM 6 MI NORTH OF [our town] TO 2 MI SOUTH OF [the city where our 4wd is currently]All four wheels! We do have chains for all four wheels, but I've never used them. I'm up for the challenge!
And this one:
CHAINS OR SNOW TIRES ARE REQUIRED [on the highway to music lessons]We will have studded snow tires at that point.
Chains are on the back wheels of the van now. I'll take them off when I get to the end of our driveway. I would love to not have to put them back on before we get to the city, but I will if need be. I do have a Sew Crafty Friday project to post tomorrow, but if I don't post you'll know that (1) we spent the night in the city or (2) our power went out.
I just sent J out to start bringing in enough wood from the woodshed to the back porch to last us until Sunday. That snow is coming down fast and piling up quickly!
P.S...I'll take this opportunity to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY! to my little brother. 34 years ago my status as the baby of the family was disrupted. Go say hi to him here.
