Winters...are on...'sniff...sniff'

Just put my winters on...maybe prematurely...but easier than when it's raining and cold...I know there'll be a few more nice sunny days between now and first snow. one less thing to worry about.

What's the 5-day temp range in your area?

The evenings in Vancouver are below 10.

Might as well put some money aside to replace your winter tires before the snow falls.

Mine aren't going till end of January lol. I love my summers, although we may be in for a snowy winter so it is wise to get them on but October is too early for me.

It's starting to get cold on the west coast but no where near 6 during the day.

I have my winters ready to go - but not yet...

I'll probably wait another few weeks for the weather to be consistently cooler. Did anyone else pick up a set of Toyo Observe GSi-5? I haven't seen any reviews on them (I think they are replacing the G-02), so I'll let everyone know how they perform once the snow starts to fall.

I like to have my winters on by the Grey Cup weekend. I've found it to be a good way to remember to put my winters on each year (well, as long as you follow Canadian football)

I was supposed to go back to HK for 4 weeks coming back mid Nov...I didn't want to put my winters on when I got back, so I put them on early...now my trip was cancelled, so I've been driving on winters for the last 10 days...I just don't go out during the day and wait for the temps to drop to around 10...LOL
