Unfortunately, getting an alternate vehicle for winter isn't an option.

I was wondering how much weight I should throw in the trunk to help with traction. Would a coupla sand tubes help all that much @ 75lbs per tube?

Im thinkin about getting winter tires, too - not quite sure what to get
yeah, they'll help, but winter tires will help more.

Best bet is to get a package with steel wheels, or go to a salvage yard, pick up some steel wheels from a base 'stang, throw some winter tires on. and put your good rubber on in spring.

they have packages at and

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.
