Spring in the U.P. Northwoods

Where the southern boreal meets the temperate forests one thing is for sure ,Never count on a quick transition to spring.

After -16 F a few mornings ago the weather has warmed up and brought some heavy wet snow.

I seen others strugling with the challenging road conditions.

I'm confident I have the best traction on the road, They really performed well in spite of very slick conditions. The lateral traction the R2's provide really help in this weather.

It will be interesting to see how April shakes out, last year we got 35'' of snow, I remember 2007 we got over 50'' in 4 days but something tells me that won't happen this year..

My MPG's has been averaging 39 which is still good and the low rolling resistance on the Nokian tires is a plus that can pay you back over time.

Till next time keep your tires on the ice and the firewood burning!
