    its been getting cooler and cooler at night. we had a rain storm last night and we got about 5" up the hill alittle ways. i attempted to get all the way up in my 4x4 excursion but the crappy tires on my 20s couldnt do it. after turning around i went home and grabbed the 300C AWD with blizzak snow tires and got to the top no problem. i'm getting snow tires for the excursion today haha

    and yes my double studded snow tires are going on this week lol


    heres some pics

    You suck 91AK ! Just kidding. I'm sure I can speak for most of us that we are very envious that you got to at least play in some snow. The leaves haven't even thought of changing color here yet. Thanks for the pics. I was forgetting what snow looked like.

    yeah the battle with the leaves has been going on for awhile now. my dad just got back in from mowing them up again lol

    i fixed the snow traction issue later in the day yesterday. got my double studded snow tires put on the truck. so i wont be having any traction issues anymore thank god!

    we still have a few weeks untill it hits here in town, which is good i have ALOT to do to get the plow truck ready and the plow. plus cleaning around the house/garage.

    the snow tires installed

    Come back to Boston. We have seen 2 snows already this year. The last one lasted for like 9 hours! Nothing stuck, but it was nice to see. Im sure you saw it while watching the Pats game though, right? :p
