Be Careful

We got alot of snow here last night I was in the movie theatre as the snow really started coming down. What was supposed to be about a 40 minute drive took me about an hour and a half getting home. Since I was in my mustang I had to drive about 20 miles an hour on the highway. Well this morining my mom came to where I was working and told me this girl I graduated high school with two years ago had a really bad car wreck on here way back home. She had a little convertible car and slid into the other lane and was hit by a ford exursion hauling a big trailor and she didn't make it. I wasn't close with her but with a class of 120 people I definatly knew who she was.

Don't take any hazardous road conditions lightly no matter what you drive or how experienced you are.

Re: Be Careful

sorry to hear that - its sad to hear when someone loses their life like that. ice/snow can be unpredictable. always gotta play it safe.

some tips for those who dont experience snow that often:

brake lightly and brake early. don't make sharp maneuvers, control the momentum of your vehicle. if you do start sliding around, avoid braking hard or steering hard and try to calmly and smoothly correct yourself - it can sometimes make the situation worse. and lastly, if you do get stuck, avoid gassing it too hard. you can dig yourself deeper and/or wear your tires down. its best to dig a bit around the tire or throw down some sand/dirt for traction.

A handy tip I always used: Higher gear (If you drive a 5 speed) with lower rpms.

It's still snowing here, been doing it for the last 3 days. I wish it'd stop and at least let the sun come out a little.
