Winter has finally attacked ND in full force. In just one day we've had 10 inches of snow and we're do for at least another 4-6 in my area alone before the end of Wednesday. It's lulled now but to be on the safe side I called into work today (thank god I have some vacation time to cover it) because driving home yesterday (I had to leave early because I did not want to drive in that shit at night) was a nightmare. Hopefully the DOT gets into full force today and gets the roads cleared and sanded so I can get to work tomorrow since this Charger hates ice and snow (my god the ass end of my car was sliding every which way yesterday no matter how slow I was going).

Mostly sand, they run a liquid ice melter (they use the dry shut too from time to time) as well but for the most part they sand the roads out here. I'm starting to wish I had snow tires but I just need to get used to how this car handles, my Buick used to do the same shut till I learned how to handle it in winter (got to spoiled by Arizona winters for those 3 years I was down there).
Where shut is put shit, god damn phone auto correct x.x
A friend of mine used to be an expert with driving in the snow and ice, he'd purposefully slide the car all over the place with control and it blew my mind. I could do it to an extent but then I discovered snow tires and realized I could drive almost like normal during the winter without having my knuckles turn bleach white from gripping the steering wheel in terror for an hour on the freeway in a snow storm.
