i missed this.

Ok so this is not really an epic journey. But man it was fun to ride in the snow again. I went to workfriday afternoon, I drive city transit in Toronto Canada for a living and when the snow started coming. Man I was excited. It was only a heavy dusting. Nothing major. But enough to get me a little spin and slide here and there. On a side not. I have an 06 640 adv and put Heidenau k60 tires on at the beginning of the summer and they have been spectacular during all conditions hot, rain, dirt and now snow. People at work think I am nuts. They just don't know what they are missing. The looks on other motorists faces are classic. Pure confusion

Well not epic but it was really fun.
Thanks for listening
Laurence

That is awesome. We don't have winters like that in the city anymore. When I was a kid we made snowhills in our back yard to toboggan on. Now 6 inches is an emergency and nobody goes to work. Lol.

Sounds a lot like Utah.

Plus everyone cries like a baby when we do get that snow. How they hate it when it snows, etc. I always tell them to MOVE to a place where it does not snow. (then again it is getting to where they have done so already, sigh.)
