    The roads weren't great this morning. Took me 17 mins to get to work instead of 16.

    The commute time for me was fine, it was average, but that’s also since a lot of people are still off, I can only imagine what this would have been like if it were to hit on Monday

    Yep my commute time was fine today even though I left about 30 minutes later. Also the parkade was empty so as you mention the roads were dead.

    Drive in was weird. Did it snow or something over night?

    Drove my Z downtown this morning at 8am from Airdrie with my brand new Maxxis Artictrekker tires and still can't decide if the roads weren't as bad as they looked or these cheap Taiwanese tires are really that damn good. Drove behind a Mustang for a good portion of it and he seemed fine full too... only a little bit of slippage felt in Airdrie and on side streets but that's only if I tried, (applying more throttle than necessary in 2nd and 3rd)...

    It comes!



    Still amazes me that a fully funded by British empire expedition, best equipment manpower and resources and planning - a little over a hundred years ago. Could still manage to freeze to death with a couple weeks of -40 degree weather. One of my fave YouTube clips.

    With the upcoming week of cold weather, it's time for my most controversial annual statement!

    Battery chargers are more important than block heaters!

    Garage heaters are more important than both.

    Definitely max out on the CCAs - the battery will last you in service longer. I got almost 8 years out of a Motormaster Eliminator in a DD vehicle.

    I've been running synthetic and got the block heater on a remote triggered switch.

    Battery blanket also works wonders. I have both oil pan heater plus blanket.

    Just leave my truck running 24/7 for a week. Am I doing this right?
