It's been a mild winter so far.....I'm not complaining.
That means I miss something.
You know the drill: Your vehicle has been parked outside. You approach your vehicle before your morning commute or your trip to the grocery store. (Remember morning commutes and trips to the grocery store?) You notice a dirty chunk of frozen slush clogging the space around one of your tires. You size up this enticing black-snow booger. You kick it—maybe with your toe, maybe with your heel. The lumpy mass of frozen funk falls off with a satisfying crunch and plop.
You feel good. You repeat this for all four tires. You feel let down if one of your tires is gunk-free.
I miss this.
