Since it snows here on the gulf coast maybe once every five years and torrential rainstorms are frequent, all-season grand touring tires are pretty much ideal.
Whereas here in New England we all swear by Finnish snow tires that sound like your cat horking up a hairball, a/k/a Hakkapelliita.
Roger that, I have a set of studded Hakka 2's on the minivan and a set of Hakka R SUV's on the pontiac torrent. I try to support NellyCam's home country once in awhile
And Cpt. Ned LOL at the mouse carcasses, true enough though, I have seen older home 1930's with rags, crumpled up paper, sawdust, air, and who knows what else for insulation, I guess with free wood in those days (if you cut/chopped it yourself) people didn't care about heating then.
I am fortunate when it comes to good insulation, I bought my parents house, my dad built it in 1984 to the R-2000 spec.
