Well, we get probably one good storm. Maybe a good 5 or 6 inches, then it'* plowed. It'* usually just cold. I've lived there my whole life, so I'm just used to it. I've never experienced winter by Lake Michigan.

I'm usually pretty good. When I was learning to drive years ago, my dad took me out, and made me intentionally do fishtails and slide, so I would learn how to get out of them.

i hate black ice. its on the freeways here alot. and my dad never taught me how to do all that spining stuff but when i first spun for the first time it was like natural for me i dont even know when it happens until after it happen its like i go blank and my hands do it on their own. i have never been in the ditch or anything. i think it mostly from grand trismo i play it so much, mostly the rally races and u have to do alot of drifting and i think i learned from that.

Definitely. But they only do so much. I had a gf once who was going through a pass and just as a hairpin turn came up, her front axle broke, gouging right into the pavement. Unable to steer, she went right through the gaurdrail, rolled down the mountainside, and ended up upside down in the creek at the bottom. It was only about 80ft there. She was able to get out, climb back up and flag for help. I was like... ...when I heard. Scared me to death.
