We had accumulated enough kitchen garbage, so the wife sent me to take it to the convenience center. Our road had been salted/brined and is in pretty good shape to drive, even at the 10 degrees we were having. And then I got to the road to the dump.

I am gonna say there was about an inch and a half of solid frigging ice.

And since our vehicle is a front wheel drive, I can say it was a nice butt-tightening ride there for a while. But my old off-roading experience finally processed this as a very-frigging-slippery layer of mud and I applied acquired knowledge with the new input to keep me “safe.”

I realized I can deal with ice, but dealing with dumbasses also driving in the ice near you is another matter. I actually had one idiot tailgating me as it was the funniest shit in the world because he had a raised pick up truck… which was not 4×4.

Morons everywhere.

  1. I live in the Buffalo, NY area. Ice & snow on the roads is normal November – March. Deal with it. I also don’t throw pickle juice (used for cooking) or rubbing alcohol (first aid and solvent uses) on my windshield.

    It always caused me to scratch my head when I was in States that went in to full blown panic mode over 3 – 5 inches of snow. I’m used to the 3 – 5 ft. like we have now.

  2. Everything I learned about driving on ice I learned from the Atari racing game’s “ice track” levels. It’s surprisingly served me well.

    1. Oh, I see now: “The Brooklyn resident — who supports her family, including her mother — runs her own company where she mentors kids on Saturdays through music and helps them stay off the streets, and away from drugs and gangs, according to Wright.”
      Parents aren’t paying for those kids to be “mentored” — the government is. She’s a scammer, a leech, midnight basketball under a different name.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
