    Bad roads in winter i do say those are the days, i remember when we had to do a exotic animal rescue run in the dead of a super awful blizzard had to drive 150 miles to the rescue and it was black ice everywhere on the roads got to this one huge bridge we had to cross and that was it JR kept the car, we had a car at the time, under control but we spun several times and finaly coming to a stop against the gaurd rail at the other end of the bridge and we watched in horror as all kinds cars spun out of control one went right off the bridge. JR and i both felt like our hearts had jumped out of our chests and the poor kids was just freaking out so bad. Black ice is very commin up here on the roads, you cant see whats under the snow..

Thank god we always have 4x4 trucks now, cant live in the great white north without one.. LOL!!

    Try living near NYC, where half the residents are imports from places where it rarely or never snows. Then they either drive 5mph in a flurry or (the other extreem), treat it like a rain shower.

    Lol, good not just me today then.

    I made it all of 2 blocks, till I ended up in the ditch today. The first curve in the road, and there I went head first into a 4 foot deep ditch 1.5:1 slope (over:up). Even with 4 I couldn't back straight out, I had to drive parellel to the road, for about 30 ft. Throw it into reverse and push the back end up on to the road.
    I was going super slow around the corner as it was, but geez.. Made me worry alot about the next 60ish miles I had to go.

    We are due for "something" tonite or tomorrow morning. Its been pretty cold but I think they are calling for freezing rain turning into rain. We are all waiting to see what tomorrow will be like. If its icy, they will delay the office opening for a little while.

    Something similar happens around here during/after the first snowfall. Everyone forgets how to drive in the snow and either drives 1mph or 90mph through it.

    When it snows, I usually keep pace with traffic (whatever speed that may be) and give a good amount of space between my car and the one in front of me.
