Snow Storm Delivery
My wife is about to give birth to our first child. We experienced exactly what we do not need last night. As a native Southerner, I have one experience driving in snow and on ice in my life. That was not a good experience as I skidded, spun across five lanes, and ended up on a traffic island, remarkably without damaging anyone or anything including myself and my four-wheel drive 1978 Jeep Wagoneer. I have next to no skill at winter driving because growing up in a state with mild winters, I have no practice at it. Now, with a winter baby on the way, and the chance that I may have to rush to the maternity hospital at any time and possibly in icy conditions, I had better hope I still have my horseshoe.
