I grew up in snow country

and can remember my parents changing to snow tires in the winter. That was 1950's. We moved to California in 1965. In 1988 my husband and I left California in a new 4 wheel drive Jeep for Missouri. We learned to carry kitty litter in the winter to help with traction if we got stuck in an icy spot. Next cars were another 4 wheel drive Ford Explorer and a front wheel drive Altima after moving to Nebraska.

We always lived in town. Never got stuck out in a snowstorm. Did use the kitty litter a couple of times.

Now I'm retired and have no need to drive in any of the few snowstorms we get in Raleigh.
