Winter goes out like a lion

Snow is falling in some areas in the higher elevations around Western Oregon, including in areas around Portland and Salem.

Spring is less than two weeks away and this is only the second day this winter that there has been snow or ice on or near the valley floor. Yet, I've been hearing cars driving all around Salem all winter long with studded tires.

That's enough reason to chew up asphalt all over the Willamette Valley isn't it? One or two days of slick roads per winter?

Well, the answer to your question is "probably not;" however, prudence dictates preparedness--like the old Boy Scout motto.

But I'm at sea; what is "snow"..."ice"...?
