Re: Weather!

Always get our winter tyres put on by the first weekend in November. Why? Because we got caught out our first year here. Had booked the car in for the tyre change on the second Thursday in November, thinking that would be fine. Had our first snowfall on the Tuesday; it took the OH an hour and a half to get home (some 15kms) from work as he was slipping and sliding all over the place on the summer tyres. Had to have the Wednesday off as it wasn't safe for him to drive due to the snow.

Got them on a little earlier this year as the forecast was for low temps and possibly rain which could have meant the roads would be icy at the times he's driving to/from work these days.

I'd rather have them on a little early than too late.
