    I would have also said we were headed for a mild winter until about a week ago :cry:.

    While I have snow tires, but I haven't put them on yet. I can't imagine that in 24" of snow that they are...

    It hit 100 degrees F here today. All of this talk of winter seems a little premature :D.

    Of course, I get home and my wife has the AC cranked up so now I need to go find a blanket.

    I am dreading the studded tires. Realistically we don't need them where I am until around mid December or thereabouts - this year we didn't get any precipitation like that until January. And by...

    It is. I am thinking the starting point is trying to figure out which is more accurate. For example, if the wheel magnet gets jostled and no longer registers every time the wheel goes around, then...

    On the one hand, it seems like it might be kind of interesting. But it depends a lot on how oftentimes you end up replacing your helmet for other reasons (i.e. it starts to stink).
