I've spent a week farting around the house, as generally, snow and ice only last a few days around here. Not this year: the street's still a mix of compacted snow and ice, and more freezing rain is on the way. Screw it. I took the AWD over to Lake Oswego, which appears to be the only place where you can buy cable chains for an Si. The store had them, and I installed them. Hated to spend the money, but you gotta do what you gotta do. This winter is just not letting up. I've not seen this here since maybe 1974. It's brutal.
But you get tired of messing around in the house after a week or so. I may not need to go anywhere in the coming days, but it's nice to know that I can go.
