Winter driving

18 Dec

Once again we are at the time of year where one can expect old man winter to drop on us any amounts of that white stuff which falls from the sky. As I work mostly in Southern climates it’s always fascinating watching their eyes light up when I show then winter pictures from home. It’s amazing how entranced they can become when they have never seen it. I suppose some of that, I truly understand since for them it’s such a foreign idea. How can it be so cold everywhere outside and for so long to create the winter wonderland. It’s just so inconceivable.
No amount of my extolling the hardships of winter can remove the aura. To them I’m just exaggerating because I am so familiar with it. Perhaps I am. I usually end the story with, “yes indeed winter can be good if all you have to do is play in it”. However for us Northerners winter can be treacherous and miserable. Ask anyone who has changed out a flat tire by the side of the road with a blizzard going on. Or when the City road clearing trucks goes by your driveway dropping some despicable amount of snow which is projected away from their blades while they zoom by at 30 miles an hour. When you’ve just finished shoveling for some 2 hours your driveway only to find that now you have another half hour or more to redo the work you just did. Of course now as a parent you get some compensation watching your own growing boys learn that you never throw the snow of the left side of the driveway (not that I would tell them in advance) because that #$%^& City truck is only going to deposit the snow right back when he drives by. You learn to throw your snow on the right, that way your neighbor gets your snow, of course you equally get your neighbor’s snow that lives on your left .
However this winter has a different twist. Why because our socialistic members of parliament find that once again they must cradle my ineptitude. The authorities, are determining that I can no longer make decisions on my own. Why is that so? Well because they are changing the laws and forcing us to purchase and install “winter tires” on all vehicles by some predetermined date. Of course it’s always under the guise of safety. However is it really safety or economic stimulation. I have serious doubts. Read my newest article https://dl.dropbox.com/u/19327951/Required-Or-EconomicStimulous-2.pdf and see for yourself what you think? Is it really safety, or economy?
