Fun In The Snow… ShiftingLanes.com Style

Here in the Northeast we “enjoyed” another crap fest of a winter.  Temperatures were unreasonably cold I mean just stupid cold.  Not to mention the thigh high snow outside my house.  The awful road conditions, salt everywhere, enormous tire eating pot holes, and so on.  Enough is enough damn it.  However, …
