That was scary to watch.

The Weather Channel just showed a blue sedan driving on a very icy road. It spun out of control, slid diagonally across three lanes, spun around, slid in reverse (in the direction of traffic), spun around again and seemed to stabilize. It is amazing that there was no crash (at least they didn't show one). But it was absolutely frightening to watch.

It reminds me of the time when Alvin drove us from Champaign to Pittsburgh. We were in Ohio, it was torrential downpours (and we were still on the road). An SUV not far in front of us literally spun off the road in a circle. It was like watching in slow motion and quite scary.

To everyone in this wintry mix, snow and ice - drive carefully!
