I have two possessions that make Wisconsin winters more bearable: my snowblower and my snow tires. Both pose similar dilemmas, though. In the case of the snowblower, I have to decide when to burn off the remaining gas and stuff it in the back of the garage, making room for such things as the lawnmower and the grill. In the case of the snow tires, I have to decide when to swap them out for the normal tires. My wife has a set, too, so this means removing and installing a total of 16 wheels. I do these things when I’m confident we won’t get another appreciable accumulation of snow. Of course, I could wait until June to be sure, but that would be dumb. So this week’s poll question is, have we seen the last of this winter’s snow?
