Unfortunately, it's not the edible kind. It's the kind one needs for their car, especially if their car has stock low profiles that suck in the snow. And when I mean suck, I mean REALLY suck.
Vancouver has gotten a lot of snow this year.... along with a lot of sub-zero temperature, which freezes the slush into sheets of ice overnight. Making it horrible for us folks to survive with just 1 set of all-season tires.
The boss needs me to deliver a proposal tomorrow to North Vancouver. We work near transit, so it's totally busable. Except transit will take ~1+ hr and driving will take <10 mins. With another snow fall due any day now, I did not want my car to be permanently abandoned at work until the spring so off I went in search of snow tires.
It was not an easy task. I think I called about 6 tire places, most of which didn't have any of the possible sizes in stock and the ones with possible sizes wanting $1400+ for them. Finally found a place that sold decent tires for a decent price (Volco Tires on Marine Dr) and went down there to get them put on. Now my car will drive like the other cars on the road - the other cars with all-season that are not low profile.
We'll see how well these tires end up working for me.
Knitting wise, one may have noticed I have many projects on the go. One of which is a cowl I hope to finish before this cold snap ends. Ha! I think that falls in with the shawl I wanted to finish in 1 month. Wish me luck.
