Your area? What area?

Winter? cold, icy roads, but I think more people slide off the road due to crickets than ice.

I have a good credit history and am a home owner in different state who is responsible.

Lastly can anyone give me an ideal of what the winter months are like and driving conditions.

Thank you in advance
The Ely Times (elynews.com) may have info on rentals in the classifieds. Might want to look at Desert Mountain Realty (nevada-dmr.com) as they sometimes have rentals.

Winter for the most part is long and cold with the heaviest snows comming later on (Feb-April, into may the last couple of years). It is usually pleasent until end of Dec-begging of Jan when there tends to be a few weeks of very cold (days in the teens, nights in the negative teens) weather and some snow. Roads for the most part arn't a problem. NDOT does an excellent job of keeping the roads clear with very few closures, mostly during heavy storms. Around the areas the city and county are in charge of its a different story. Plowing can be irregular and ice can be a problem. Ive had problems at times getting to my house in a hilly area called "The Terrace" in a 2wd vehicle, but snow tires have pretty much eliminated that problem. Yes, accidents are much more common in the winter months but thats mostly due to people not driving correctly for the road conditions. You cant really do highway speeds sometimes in the winter but people do it anyways.
