Easy Does It…We Don’t Say That to Hear Ourselves Talk. Okay, Maybe I Do. But, Seriously!

I knew the driving was going to be bad when I slid down the hill on the unimproved road I live on. When I got to the main drag, it wasn’t much improvement. In fact, it was worse because I KNEW my road was going to be bad. The sand on the main road lulled me into a false sense of security. Luckily, I knew how to test the road by breaking in such a way I could tell if it was slick without losing control (thank you Trooper Tim). It was….very….slippery…

Much of the ice is gone now, replaced with some slush (bad) and large puddles of standing water (as bad or worse). You need to take your time. If you hit standing water at 50 or 60 miles an hour, it’s a pretty good bet you’ll be hydroplaning. If you’ve never experienced that, trust me, you’re just as well off. It’s the same as being on ice. You have no control of your automobile. Only, with water, you may not be expecting it so you’re cruising along at a good clip when you hit it. The results of such an occurrence is often deadly. Today, expect there to be standing water and slow down.

Tonight, it’s going to refreeze. That will make the roads, once again, a skating rink. Be ready for that. Leave early. Call to say you’ll be late. Just don’t push it. Better to get there a little late and safe than not at all, Right. Of course I’m right….I’m Mr. Knowledge, remember? Nah, I didn’t think you would.

OK….time to put on my double bladed training skates and go check the mail. Peace out!
