Winter Is Here
The first real snow is falling tonight. Yes, we had the 15cm fluke before Haloween, but that doesn't count, since I wasn't out driving.

Tonight, after only two centimetres of snow, I had to come back home from class, and it was quite terrifying. I've never driven rear-wheel drive in snow, and my summer tires are what you might call "bald."

Naturally, before leaving Algonquin College, I tried out handling on the empty-ish parking lot. Not impressive. At a minimal speed of 10km/h, it took well over a car length to stop, with ABS firing off on every wheel.

Definitely putting on the winter tires this weekend...
