Do You Chain Up In Bad Weather?

Or do you park the rig until the roads are better?

I personally park the truck if at all possible, whether it is in a chain up area, or simply horrible road conditions.
 
If it is bad enough to chain.......then it's a good time to rest. In 21 years I have never put chains on. Gues I am timid. lol "Smile and Drive" Boogie

We had a day in truck driving school where we put chains on. Oddly enough, I was out getting my required driving time on the highway with the instructor, and there was a wreck that held us up for over an hour. By the time we got back, it was too late for me to put chains on, and I conveniently forgot to remind them the next day.

I don't think I am so much against driving in the bad weather, I just don't want to get out and freeze my ass off messing with a bunch of rusted up chains.

When I lived in Washington I heard that some of the truck drivers would put the chains on there trailer tires going down the pass's. Or does every body that uses chains do this.
