The Spring Stud Storm | Letters to the Editor | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

The Spring Stud Storm

There's really no point in complaining or even commenting about the weather in Central Oregon. It's just to predictably unpredictable. Summer one day and winter the next. But one meteorological phenomena continually leaves us scratching our heads and that's the inevitable snowstorm that follows springtime reminders to get our studded tires off our cars and our beleaguered roadways. It never fails. Every year as studded tire deadline approaches a storm rolls as if to punctuate the folly of a winter without studs. Even in this El Nino year where the grind of studs on bare pavement has become a constant backdrop in Bend, the four winds see fit to throw a nearly weeklong winter storm. We're not a holy bunch around here, but we're starting to think that the Good Lord Above is a minority partner in a certain formerly Prineville-based tire franchise.
