It snowed a little bit more overnight here, but it had been well below freezing too, so yesterdays snow was now packed ice with fresh snow on top, which is worse than just regular snow, this was snow coated ice.
It didnt look like anywhere had been gritted at all either, just the volume of traffic in and around the place that had made most roads passable without too many problems, still icy though.
I did enjoy the turning into where i work though, just between the 2 red lines on this picture, stopped at the junction, no cars parked on the roadway at all, lots of room, so i turned in, a small blip of the throttle in 2nd gear, held nice gentle revs and a majestic glide beautifully sideways for the duration of the roadway until i straightened her up to stop and open the gates at work, it was bliss, none of the rev limiter tyres wailing craziness you normally get, just a relaxing and gentle drift at about 10 mph in 2nd gear, lovely and relaxing.
The big "snowstorm of the decade", as I've seen it mentioned above, that hit the Eastern US netted me a mere 2 inches out in the driveway. Hardly anything to fret about, but the cancellations being scrolled across the news this morning is unbelievable. Every weekend event is canceled and it isn't even enough snow to make a nice snowball out of.
I just ran for gas for my car and to fill up the new snowblower. I'm anxious to try it out, but I'd look like an idiot out in this "dusting".
left foot brake, on track left foot braking makes fwd oversteer a bit, so in snow, its a no brainer, give a bit more gas, and brake a little, your front wheels will both have power going to them, and the rear will be locked up
