Parts of Alabama getting rain, snow, sleet today. Mostly in the northern 1/3. Yes you can still buy tire chains or cables here. NAPA stocks a few sizes. The problem we have with snow is that it is so unpredictable. Just like the other Gulf coast states. Timing of the cold air meeting the gulf moisture is so critical. Forecasters hate trying to predict snow. Our snow is always the heavy, wet stuff that freezes into ice. Or compacts into ice as others have said. And it usually starts off as freezing rain or sleet. Treating roads with salt brine is usually a lost cause. The rain washes it away before the ice and snow start. We can also go years between ice or snow events too. Doesn't make a lot of sense for the various government agencies involved in road maintenance to invest in snow equipment very much. By the time it is needed, it would require too much maintenance to get operational. Normally snow or ice only lasts a day or two anyway. Much easier to just wait it out, drinking milk and eating bread of course.

Hurricanes and snow events are known as French toast weather systems

This is the township road up to my camp. It is not winter-maintained, it’s barely summer-maintained.

Same road going down the hill.

It’s like anything else, do it enough and you get good at it, or at least get used to it.


Eh...wot?
