My area got a light dusting of snow overnight that turned into a solid sheet of ice by morning. Naturally, most people stayed home and waited for the roads to clear. I wanted to try out my first set of actual snow tires, so I left earlier than usual.

I had a blast, could get the car really sideways and then pull it right back into line. There were a bunch of steep hills with stuck cars, but I didn’t even come close to stuck even once.

And yes, I had the top down the whole time.
