Driving on ice is not my favorite thing to do. Snow's OK, even blowing snow, I can handle (think heavy snow, 25 mph winds and [really] flat land with few trees). But ice or freezing rain? I've driven on it when I've had to. But when I greet such weather with "oh, this should be fun", believe me the sarcasm is unmistakable. :wink:
What's the fuss about? It snows- you drive. It freezes-you drive. I'm almost always travelling by bike (bicycle to make it absolutely clear), no matter what the road conditions are. If the wether is foul you just go extra careful with your car and use the handbrake to slide around corners... Snow and ice IS fun!
