If the roads are dry before it hits freezing again I'll probably be OK, but if not I've got the shitty 23 mile drive tomorrow on roads in an area not prepared for snow and ice. It's not really that I doubt my ability to drive, it's more than people here are clueless about driving in icy conditions.
I'm not sure which is worse, those who believe they can drive in anything because they are use to such conditions (not you) or those who are clueless because they are not use to such conditions (still not you ). Around here far too often driving carefully in icy and snowy conditions is considered a sign of someone who CANNOT drive in the snow and those who "know how to drive" in these conditions prove themselves by driving way too fast in all wheel drive vehicles blasting the careful drivers if you know what I mean. As you know I have to cross the river a lot, you would be surprised how many people do not have a clue that bridges freeze first and can freeze when the temp is above freezing.
Of course there are some drivers who actually believe that perhaps setting the alarm 1/2 an hour early and leaving early is a better idea than hitting snooze three more times...but they never seem to be on the road with me
I hope you can stay home
Actually I'm at work now and it wasn't too bad. I left an hour later than rush hour and the roads weren't that busy. Saw wrecks on the way and idiots everywhere, but I took it slow and kept my eyes on the road and other traffic.
Should be gone by this afternoon as the temperature should stay in the mid to high 30s for the rest of the day.
