🚙 So maybe I knew this and had just forgotten, or maybe this is the first time I am hearing about it, but in Alaska all cars have these power cables sticking out of the front. And no these are not plug-in hybrids or EVs — people here plug in their cars overnight to prevent the engines from freezing over. 🥶
❄️ Good morning from Alaska! It’s 1 °F (-18 °C) here! ☃️
May not be the most pragmatic use of last minute airline miles but put another way, it was a “bundle” offer that was very hard to refuse 😂
It’s always nice to use a product that manages to reimagine a product category and surpasses it.
WA state finally made Autosocks legal in 2012 and my wife and I were the first in line to get these. You can put them on in seconds with no effort, tightening, retightening etc needed. They work just as well as chains. You can plough through the snow. They have no metal on them. So no damage to the tires or to the roads. Been using these for two years now – there’s no real catch except you gotta take them off when there’s no snow – the hard dry road will do a number on them. But you shouldn’t be driving on dry road with any traction devices anyway.
