On the (extremely) rare occasions when it does snow, all the drivers here panic. That's more of a worry to me than driving in the snow itself.Well its probably good the OP is in DA SWAMP, guessing they dont get much snow there.
The recommendation was based on the OP's low miles, and expected weather/location.
no need for $1000 worth of tires for that imo.
now driving 12-18k miles a year and seeing quite a bit of snow they wouldnt be optimal for myself. in the Ne Ohio snow belt.
Three days before Christmas in '89 we had a record snowfall. I left work early, and still my usual 30 minute commute took two solid hours, because everybody was panicking and spinning his wheels. I'd never driven in snow at that point, but even then I knew the rules were simple: "Slow down. Leave extra following distance. And don't change direction abruptly."
The snow stayed on the ground for 2 days. So we *almost* had a white Christmas.
