大溫地區迎來今年首場大雪

Remember tire pressures vary with tempertre change, therfore you should adjusted accordingly and here is an article for your reference.

The rule of thumb is for every 10° Fahrenheit change in air temperature, your tire's inflation pressure will change by about 1 psi (up with higher temperatures and down with lower).
In most parts of North America, the difference between average summer and winter temperatures is about -50° Fahrenheit...which results in a potential loss of about 5 psi as winter's temperatures set in. And a 5 psi loss is enough to sacrifice handling, traction, and durability!
Additionally, the difference between cold nighttime temperatures and hot daytime temperatures in most parts of the country is about 20° Fahrenheit. This means that after setting tire pressures first thing in the morning, the vehicle's tire pressures will be almost 2 psi higher when measured in the afternoon (if the vehicle was parked in the shade). While that is expected, the problem is when you set your vehicle's tire pressures in the heat of the day, their cold pressures will probably be 2 psi low the following morning.

Too bad most of the snow on my front yard is already melted.

I don't we will have a white Christmas like last year.
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 sn ...

If your car is a rear wheel drive to improve traction, you could leave  a bag of sand or something heavy  in the trunk.  This could help the rear wheels easier to contact the road surface that mean more traction.

It is really doesn't matter much to me now, I have too much snow here.
My work glove got wet, but the water frozen before they could drain away.

Any chance you'll back to Vancouver for Christmas?
thanks for sharing

厚達20厘米的降雪 --> 對溫哥華市來講, 唔細啦
以前溫哥華市好少落雪, 一年可能得一, 兩次, 而家愈來愈多, 愈來愈大

我就唔鐘意落雪, 好煩... 以前溫哥華市的人, 唔習慣落雪, 次次落雪, 都好多輕微交通意外

Thank you for the suggestion, wolf ching. My experience is that when the pressure is low and it's snowing, my car has a tough time going uphill (Knight St)and actually it skidded a bit. Once I have the air pumped, it went without further issue.

I am at home now,........will stay at home until next year
Hey guys, I just bought another 10kg of salt to replenish my depleted salt reserve!!

With my brand new snow tires, I will have absolute mobility during the holiday seasons regardless of weather, come hell or high-snow!
輪到我地美東啦,星期六晚可能有30cm雪,精彩,問你死未!
