"My brother was once stopped by the California Highway Patrol in the Sierra Nevada.  They'd closed the highway because of snow.  He was sitting there in his four wheel drive pickup, with snow tires and chains.  In short, equipped…"

Native Son replied to Lawless's discussion Car gets stuck in snow. Getting it out?
"BINGO!  Especially the part about putting real mud/snow tires on the car.  I've had the "M/S" labelled regular tires spin enough on wet pavement to really not want to go chainless into snow and black ice country.  If I…"

"Cat litter: pour some under the tires, let it set a bit and try to go. If you don't have that, use your rear seat floor mats (you'll probably lose them, or wont want them back) in basically the same way. Jam them under the drive…"

TKM replied to Lawless's discussion Car gets stuck in snow. Getting it out?
"Agreed. Cat litter, shovel, tarp.  I will add blankets or a coat to that list.   Thing about 4x4 though, I think it gives a lot of people a false sense of security and traction in the winter.  My truck is 4x4, but I still drive…"

John Pound replied to Lawless's discussion Car gets stuck in snow. Getting it out?
"I have a Benz and have had to encounter some very thick snow and ice over the past few years. To make it clear, it's rear wheel drive, not a 4matic. The power and torque through the rear wheels is high and it has an automatic 5 speed…"

Ari White replied to Lawless's discussion Car gets stuck in snow. Getting it out?
"Traction control can get you out if only one wheel is spinning. The nature of an unlimited slip differential allows full power to be sent to whichever wheel is spinning free. Traction control has various flavors, but the point is to send power to…"

Nick H replied to Lawless's discussion Car gets stuck in snow. Getting it out?
"I'm assuming traction control helps when one tire loses traction in rain or something. Not much good when the car's chassis is sitting on a pile of snow. My guess would be to either avoid the unplowed side roads or keep supplies in your…"

Car gets stuck in snow. Getting it out?

Story. Left for work and the roads had been plowed and were passable in the aftermath of our Sunday afternoon and evening snow storm, in but I could see the intersection ahead of the main arterial street I was on had been barricaded to keep motorists from venturing into blowing and drifting snow in windy outlying unprotected area. So did a quick right hand turn onto "somewhat" plowed residential street, which had some sets of tire tracks indicating residents had gone in and out since…See More

Lawless replied to Lynn Jones's discussion What is a manly job for 15 year olds
"At age 15 I wouldn't worry about how "manly" the job might be. Sorry, but in today's economy it is not unusual for teenagers to be competing against their adult aunts an uncles for the same jobs. Several have mentioned paper…"

Lawless replied to Jacob DeWees's discussion Tucking in your shirt, manly?
"As others have noted, traditionally men in the past always wore shirts tucked in. Look at the candid photographs in a high school or college yearbook published in the 1950's and you don't see any untucked polo and t-shirts It is simply…"

Lawless replied to Matthew L Weiss's discussion Umbrellas ok?
"I definitely prefer an umbrella over getting soaking wet in the rain! I have several different types, for example, a nice London Fog one in a carrying bag complete with a shoulder strap, a more traditional cane style one with hook handle, and a…"

"For a job connected with computer animation and special effects the suit is probably fine for a college graduate interviewing for first job. For your field you will probably be lucky if interviewer is wearing khakis and polo shirt at best, so keep…"

Lawless replied to Stein's discussion How Did You Behave in School? How has that Behavior Been Instructive in Later Years?
"I grew up isolated from other kids in my class at school. My mother and father were both a few years older, than the parents of many my classmates. They lived in an isolated neighborhood away from any of my peers in school. The upshot was that…"

Lawless replied to Jeremy Garth Richardson's discussion Sport jacket and Jeans?
"Disagree that the jeans must necessarily be dark, since you are matching them with a sport coat some contrast in color looks neat. For example, the traditional deep dark navy blue blazer works best paired against a washed out light-blue, or at least…"
