No snow here but it's been raining A LOT!! Finally. A little to late for a lot of folks around here but never the less needed.

Tahoe here I come! In my friends Jeep though. =)

It looks like we are getting 3-5" on Sunday. Just in time for the Chargers game.

Haven't changed yet (but my car is still in the body shop).

Even when I get it back, no plans to change tires. Will see how AWD does. And I was fine last winter on all seasons with the Model S (RWD)...

Tonight they are saying 2-5 inches in NC mountains, .5 to 1.5 for us, then changing to frozen stuff then rain

Probably will get a dusting then a lot of rain

We hit some flurries on the mass pike in central / western MA over the weekend and it got pretty slippery. As always, overconfident amateur-hour SUV drivers were having some trouble. I was pretty happy to have the Hakkas on the X5.
