Just a seasonal safety warning. Don't assume these bone heads with internal combustion are as well prepared for snow and ice as you are! I just about got twapped by some idot who couldn't stop at a red traffic light. I had the green and starterd, but he sailed through. Thankfully MY brakes and studs were working great and I stopped in time to avoid entanglement.
Flipping idiots. It's only FRICKING ALASKA! No need to do anything radical like, I don't know, PREPARE.
