Ice is slippery. Get it?

Jesus fucking thing I've learned in the last 3 weeks of snow/ice is that some people who drive here think they're invincible on icy roads. Especially the ones with pickup trucks. The road sign says MAXIMUM speed 100 km/hr you jerk.... so if conditions are slick, then slow the fuck down. There has not been a day that I haven't driven past a car/truck in the ditch on my way to work. know when the road has snow on it, and there are shiny, bumpy reflective mirror like patches on the road at -15 celcius? Um yeah! That would be ice you gimrod.

Since getting my new vehicle, I feel much more confident on the road but that doesn't mean that I'm invincible! I''d really like to travel at my 100km/hr speed limit again soon....but I'm not an idiot, and won't put my self in danger. I'd rather take an extra 3 minutes to get to work thank you very much.

Pass me if you think that 85 is too slow when there is no pavement showing on the road. I'm sticking to slow. I can't fucking see where the middle line is, nor where the grey cement is...nor where the road becomes ditch.

Slow and steady wins the race.


  1. Yes, we really are kindred spirits! Bwa ha ha!

  2. Yeah, people are basically fucktards in the snow. I see far more tailgaiting in the ice/snow than during the other seasons. WTF?!

    I did like our 4x4 SUV, but didn't actually use the 4X that often. Sometimes it can work against you, which is usually why you see the 4x4 fucktards in the ditch. LOL You just keep driving at the speed you want, I do the same thing. They can all fuck off.
