Funny... all the snow we got and the smart was the only car that didn't get driven today. Their loss...

Glad I got the snow tires on last week.

The smart with snow tires = Amazing. Drove around all day yesterday with no issues.

Jim, I'm pretty sure I saw you driving home last night, are the new rims dark colored?

Nope, got the stock steel rims with just the center caps (for the winter) the painted covers are in storage until spring. Put the Blizzacks on over a week ago, glad I did

Jim,

What's that stuff all over your smart. Did the washer spring a leak again? Or did you drive out of that car wash before the rise cycle?

This picture illustrates another advantage that smart has: Less snow to scrape off the windows and hood. My wife's Ford Flex took a long time to clean off before we could drive.
