Dec 16th After the snowstorm last week, inches of snow have increased. I visited my friend’s farm on the other side of the reserve and when I left I wanted to test the tires traction over lots of snow. On previous visits I noticed this flat piece of land with slight vegetation by the driveway. I went across 15 meters (50ft) of land covered by 30cm (11in) of snow at -15 Celsius (5F). I drove slowly and could feel how the tires were finding a grip until I got to a stable slow speed across all that snow. Same as last week, I felt confidence that Nokian R2 SUV could successfully get me through a given difficult situation, you never know if you will be in a real need of such driving.
