Driving Snow

It's amazing to me that since last week, Michigan drivers haven't been able to cope with the outside weather. I have my theories on why this is, but for now it's safe to say the collective intelligence on how to drive in snow in Michigan has a half-life of about 6 minutes. Driving home last night was absolutely atrocious, even though the snow wasn't so bad when I left. Sure, it was heavy snow, but c'mon people; it shouldn't take me two hours to get home when I live no more than 20 minutes away on a good day.

Also, here's a winter survival tip (outside of the normal "fill up your gas tank, leave room, wear clean underwear" tips that WWJ played over and over and over in lieu of real news): Never, under any circumstances, drink a whole bottle of iced tea prior to getting on the road. I won't go into the gory details, but suffice to say McDonald's got a coffee sale out of me after a tense episode of driving to find a restroom.
