I live Northwest of Toronto and we got about 2 feet. Lots of cars stuck in their driveways this morning and a few in the snow banks on the way to work - lots of fun driving. Yesterday I had to take 3 runs at a hill before I managed to get to the top. My car was sliding backwards down the hill while I was sitting there with the brake on - a little scary to say the least.
Told hubby that next winter I will have snow tires and not all seasons on my car.
Apparently the snow tire rubber stays softer at low temperatures (all seasons get hard at around 7 degrees above zero), hence the better grip. The folks on the radio this morning were saying that all seasons should only be used in winter in some US states - that they are not suitable for Canada or US states that receive snowfall.
But our snow crews here in Canada are amazing folks. They started clearing shortly after midnight/or wee morning hours so this morning's commute to work wasn't as bad as it could be and most, if not all, major routes are cleared, sanded/salted and good to go.
