How lucky. It was looking beautiful to-day only town roads are so thick with salt/sand/gravel at each stop sign or turn is is like riding on gravel only with more of a marble feeling.
By 3:00pm it is down to freezing or a bit lower & signs of snow or rain this complete week.
Definately it will be like mid-March before I can possibly roll out & with caution make it out to the hwy. Once on the hwy then things will be fine, but so many small streets, turns, Ts, stop signs & such with all that crap it is sensless to chance it. ONCE they get two sweeps on the crap then I might chance it, but with a lot of caution.
Sand is such a wonderful idea huh?
I think I see more people wreck because of the sand after the snow melts than the sand keeps from wrecking when there is snow. When snow is there anyone who Darwin hasn't targeted for early elimination from the gene pool will drive carefully. When the snow is gone, people assume the road is fine and don't account for the damn sand that is still there. Salt may cause rust, but you can wash the car to prevent that and at least it dissolves and goes away quicker than sand.
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
