From the last big snow storm we had in PA. The home depot I work at decided it would be a good idea to stay open all day while it was snowing so by the time I left there was 18 inches on the ground, 6+ inches on the road, the plows couldn't even keep up. Had to stop and let air out of my tires to get up a steep hill

^^wouldn't letting air out be counterproductive?

The more surface area on the snow the less you sink through (ie get to pavement?). You want the opposite of what you do on sand in the snow.

Well, the pavement was very slick underneath and my tires were almost completely bald, so cutting down to the road surface was getting me nowhere, just spinning and spinning. I figured I would increase my contact patch and "float" over the snow. It got me out of that situation, and I have heard of hard-core snow wheelers airing down to 5-8 psi to float on the snow, but they are running beadlocks. I only went down to about 12-15, I ain't got beadlocks, lol

I was just there right before Christmas 09 too! That snow was great! I used to live over in reliance so it was nice to get back up. Great pics! Sorry for the off-topic... As you were!
