溫哥華連同大溫地區面積及人口比美國東岸大城市少很多, 有51輛卡車已經很多了,

以我記得以前連吹雪車也沒有, 小埠的鄉下地方, 只適合學生和退休人仕, 係禁嫁喇。

I am not sure if the studless snow tires you mentioned are selling in Canada.
Yes, a lot of car owners change snow tires in early November before the winter come.
But for myself, and for my own driving experiences, I don't spend money on the snow tires for my daily commuting which are mainly on city roads and highways. In fact, I am quite comfortable with the factory installed all-season tires on my cars. Having said that and without prejudice, this is for my own personal preference.
I am sure that vehicles running on rural or hilly roads should better equipped with snow or even chained tires for better adherence on the snow or ice covered surface that are usually left without proper clearing.
However, my motto is drive with patience and keep your distance.

他說到星期二上午,溫哥華部分地區將出現厚達20厘米的降雪,並伴隨有冰雨。這會給一些地區造成困難

It's not nice to mock Mother Nature, but the alternative for most Metro Vancouver residents is to mock themselves for their scaredy-cat response -- as they dodge yet another dump of snow.

An estimated 20 centimetres of snow never arrived on the Lower Mainland -- although as much as 15 centimetres blanketed eastern Vancouver Island overnight and about seven centimetres fell around Abbotsford.

Snow bears down on Robson Street in downtown Vancouver on Sunday, December 13, 2009. A prediction of 20 centimetres of snow in the region did not come true, to the relief of many.


Snow and freezing rain warnings have been dropped for Vancouver Island, Haida Gwaii, the Sunshine Coast and Metro Vancouver.

But the weather office is still warning about freezing rain or heavy snow through the Central Coast and southern Interior, while wind chill warnings remain posted along the North Coast and in the Peace River region.

I was out shovelling 3" of snow at 6pm last night, spraying salt on my backyard and walkways, in anticipation of the 20cm (8") of snow to arrive....well, it never comes!

Instead of snow we have pouring rain and mild temperature, this is such a joke.

I have a 20kg bag of salt in my war chest ready to deploy, and have ordered 2 cheap snow tires to be installed.  What am I supposed to do?

Awww that's too bad swana. I'm sure there'll be more snow later in the season. But don't worry, salt doesn't go bad.

Swana are you saying that you are going to replace a pair of most worn out snow tires out of the existing 4. I suppose the tire installer will tell you the correct recommandation.

15# swana The heavy snow fall will likely come in January so the salt/tire will come in handy then.


You may also want to pump up your tires again since the cold temperature will reduce the pressure within the tire.

My snow tires are cheap China made but brand new, will install them anyways.

The salt, well, just yesterday was thinking of buying another bag to buffer my warchest in combat of the second biggest snowey season of the century (last year was the biggest).  Think I can wait a bit.
