don't step on the brakes too hard.... unless your car has ABS :p
I specifically got the Honda Accord V6 for ABS. I figured at some point I was going to need it.
I need your brush now. I need to get one if this keeps up!!!

There is a reason I live in California.
25 years in Massachusetts and 4 in Kansas.
I never want to deal with snow ever again.
Drive like you can't rely on brakes.... Whenever possible slow down to a stop rather than use breaks.
At least keep that in mind while driving.
This is the first snow storm for me. I am missing CA now. I had to drive extra slow. That will be tomorrow's post. I miss everyone in CA and stopping by the PS. Say hi to everyone for me. *hugs*
I don't think two inches is anything to worry about ^.^
We had continuous snow all day. I think we ended up with about 6 inches. It is so pretty outside right now.

I tend to worry more about the other idiots hitting me than the snow causing me to wreck.
I must say there was an amusing driver today down our street. She either had a really unstable car or just couldn't drive. She was slipping and sliding all over the place. I had one scare but that was because my brakes were dry on a wet street.
oh, you don't have the snow where if you come to a complete stop, you will get stuck. had that here two years ago, and driving sucked. also trying to get up a hill and having to go forward and back to build up enough speed/traction. also having to carry a shovel to dig myself out.
yeah, i don't really miss the snow that much.
You should've seen the ice storm that happened almost a month earlier (at the time you posted this). Everything was coated in 1/2 an inch of ice, no power, no school (yay!) for almost a week, but it wasn't too terribly bad. Then again, i actually liked winter weather back then. Not so much now after the last 2 winters. I know, new mexico winters are nothing like the ones the midwest gets but hey, you'd probably rather not have those kinds of winters! XD
