Here's a picture of my Pilot in my driveway. On my way home from work I passed numerous cars, trucks and semis all stuck in the snow. The Pilot, of course, had no problem, even with the stock Goodyears on. On my block, there was a Jeep Wrangler and a pickup that were both spinning there tires. They just sat there and looked at me as I drove by. :D

1. Nice picture !

2. Don't forget that is really frozen water falling from the sky. Temporary inconvenience, permanent improvement.

3. I, too, have had no problem with the OEM Integrity's through a rotten Western PA winter. My tire guy tells me that will change quickly, though, when the Integrity's wear about half way down.

Keep safe and warm.

I hear you on that snow blower... we bought one two years ago and it sat in the garage the past two winters. This winter, we got socked with 24+ inches over President's Day weekend and that snow blower more than paid for itself those two days!!! All of my neighbors were looking at me like they wanted to murder me (hey, I get that here on this board, too!!! :p ) when they were shoveling the old-fashioned way.... :(

I had a 4WD tractor with a front bucket and rear blade when I lived in the mountains west of Colorado Springs - really needed it there! I moved back to Loveland about 9 years ago and had one for a while in my "previous life" - but have been shoveling the hard way for the last 4 1/2 years. Still - I may have to get one again someday - or move to Florida!!!

:cool:

Hey colorider, at least twice now in two separate threads, you mentioned in your "previous life"... are you reincarnated??? :confused: Are you in the Federal Witness Protection Program? Were you abducted by aliens (the same place where dandbtucker had his "wonderful first sighting")?

Yeah - REAL lucky!!!

Not a pretty picture here this morning!! The news last night said 34" in Loveland, although I would not have guessed it to be near that much. Shoveled last night before we went to bed and this morning there is another 8-10" on the drive and walks - and still coming down. Drifting snow is bad and I have several tree and shrub branches that have broken from the snow.

Needless to say - working from home again today!!

Just an expression. I spent a good many years at my first employer (27 years) before getting caught in a RIF. Returned to Loveland, started a new career, went through some significant life-change things (including divorce). Remarried later on and here I am!! :eek:
