Snow and Tires
22 November 2011 | Halifax
Alex, sunny and COLD
Dave spent a good portion of the day yesterday at the garage, getting winter tires on our car. Tires that will propel us through the winter months with prudence and caution and a grinning smile as we sit in comfort, watching the white flakes fall on our windshield, knowing we can arrive safe and sound as we drive the roads with tread. Something that was dangerously non-existant in my previous tires.
We've kept them anyways (the old tires), although he doubts that they would have much more life left in them... a month or two perhaps. I personally think it was all them there trips to Chester to check up on our lovely Banyan, ha ha, that did them in.
The good nes was the fact that the garage was sold-out of the advertised promotional tires, so they one-or-two-or three upped the deal, and gave us much much BETTER ones, for the same low low price.
Now that's good ole fashioned customer service.
Isn't that always the way though ? You get way ahead of yourself (way to go !!) and feel damn right proud of yourself, for being so way ahead of yourself, and marvel at the way those winter tires look, way cool man, and lo and behold, the weather report comes on and the weatherman indicates that it's going to snow tomorrow.
SNOW ???!!! TOMORROW ?!?!?!?!
Lots and lots and lots of snow supposedly. In fact, it's written in banner-style in bright red letters across the weatheroffice website webpage : "SNOWFALL WARNING IN EFFECT" .
So not cool. So not the way to go. For the weather I mean.
So cool and SO THE WAY to go and so grateful for my hunny who got 'er done in time. Grin.
I sure am glad that Banyan won't be needing any winter tires.
