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.
