What's your story? Here's my latest: I was driving to the mall on I-694 this AM, going the posted 60 MPH on what looked to be clear roads. Everyone else was pretty much going the posted speed, too. Then I saw a car in the right ditch. Eased off a bit. A quarter mile up the hiway the traffic all moved to the right lane. A 3-car pileup in the left lane. Didn't take long to get through, it was a recent accident, & traffic wasn't backed up too far.
Once clear, I slowed down to 50 MPH. Most everyone else passed me. Fortunately my exit was not far ahead. The culprit? Apparently "Black Ice" We Minnesotans pride ourselves on our winter driving skills. I lived in Texas for 8 years, so I know how treacherous Black Ice can be; most Minnesotans don't because it usually doesn't warm up enough to form black ice. We usually deal with snow, & plenty of it, which our many plows clear off the roads quickly.
One caveat about our winter driving skills: We usually forget what we have learned over the summer, & so the first snowfall of the season results in a demolition derby until people remember to slow down. Since Florida is the only state in the Union that hasn't had snowfall this winter (Yes, Hawaii gets snow in the mountains - been there, done that), I'w wondering what driving excitement you may have experienced this winter. Atlanta, for instance, really got nailed with snow, & the damned stuff didn't melt like it was supposed to, except to turn into ice.
Add your horror story for us all to enjoy, but please, don't just say "Here", say where "Here" is, LOL.
