Lee has snow tires on his car, so it's very rare that I would need them. This year may be different. I may end up getting some, but we'll see. My car usually stays in Astoria, where snow and ice are (most winters) a rare occasion. There are photos from the 1800s or early 1900s with Astoria iced up and the river frozen, but those days are long gone. Or so it seems. Maybe global warming will bring back the cold weather here.
