Default I hate the snow.

Or should I say the ice. SChools been cancelled here on and off. Finished my finals today thanks to the rain we got.

couldn't make it off the road yesterday. Running 2wd, with a crapton of wood/shingle in the bed. It's nto the best, but it definately saved my butt the other day.

Hit ice coming out at the red light and spun about 30 degrees or so. Luckily no traffic and I was able to correct and get going before anything happened.

Yesterday I wasnt as lucky. Tried to move the grandmothers hyundai, and going down the driveway I hit ice and skidded. I had two choices, to hit my aunts car, or try and spin it around in the drive. I ALMOST had it, until I caught in a ridge where the driveway was eroded away bad. I did about a 270 or so spin. (Intentional, was trying to go 360 or so and coast forwards instead of backwards.) Come to find out her car was front wheel drive. I assumed it was rear and left it there assuming stuck. About two hours later my uncle goes out, slams on the gas and spins in around the rest of the way to clear the driveway. He walks in, looks at me and laughs. Yeah, front wheel drive XD (I assumed to continue to feed it gas would just spin the tires in teh rut, seeing as where I was stuck the tires were in the rut lol)

So Ranger didnt make it out for work yesterday. Today however I made it to school just fine. A great deal of the minis came in the other day (Both s-10s and a ranger) but I have sen any today, hopefully there done with their tests.

We had some ice down here as well but probably not as bad as you got there.
I didn't go out at all yesterday but the ice did start to melt later in the afternoon.
The news reported over 200 accidents yesterday due to ice on the roads and bridges.

The ice up here in Rogersville (work) and Kingsport (my apartment) SUCKED!! Lady lost it and rolled her Taurus in the ditch out here earlier, I slid this morning. I just plan ahead and drive like a 90 year old. Montana taught me to drive in this shit, BRING IT ON!!!
