First slide out of the season
November 25, 2005
We all know when winter begins: when you slide on ice or snow for the first time.
The first time came about for me at about 8:15 this morning, driving on the curviest road in the area. It was around a nice sharp little corner, luckily there was no one coming around on the other side.
It’s always good fun when you tap the brakes, and you feel them lock up on you. Just a reminder you should have learned in Driving 101: if you start to slide don’t slam on your brakes. If I did this today, I’m sure I would have done a nice little spin around and possibly caused a good bit of damage to my reasonalbly undamaged car.
Ahhh, gotta love the winter season.
