Talk Back Tue..er..Monday--The Thing about Driving in the Snow

I posted this last year about this same time, right here.  And since we've has sooo much snow this past week, I've had similar thoughts about it.  I LOVE driving in the snow.  Really!  Do you know it was -4 in Wolf creek last week?  Bbbbuuuurrrrrhhhhh!!


I like it.
Yeah, you heard me right. I like driving in the snow.

Ok, don't get me wrong, I hate driving among other stupid people who don't know how to drive in the snow.



I'm sure it helps that now that I have a 4 wheel drive, I'm feeling a little more confident out there on the slick roads.

I think the immature kid in me comes out when I drive after/during a snow storm. If there's not much traffic on the road, I like to drive as far to the edge of the road as possible, where the plow hasn't come, and slosh through the virgin snow banks. I like to make my own tracks.

And when I turn a corner, I like to gun the gas a little bit, so I kinda fishtail.
I get all giddy when the car starts to slip a little bit.

There is a huge part of me that wants to go to the church parking lot and do doughnuts. I resist, because, you know, I'm 30ish and I need to behave myself, and act mature. But I really want to.



Also, after a huge rain storm and there are big puddles on the shoulder of the road, I just can't resist driving straight through them. I just can't help myself. There is something about that huge splash on both sides of the car that just brings me pure joy.



It's the little things in life that make me happy!

You're CRAZY!!!! I freakin' HATE driving in the rain and the puddles make me make a puddle in my seat! The snow isn't as scary to me as the rain but I sure in the hell don't go around corners gunnin' it!

I'm with Kristina. You can drive us both around the next time it snows!

This is an awesome post! This has been the first time in 9 years that I haven't had 4 wheel drive...and the minivan is scaring me! You remind me of my husband-except he gives into his "immaturity" and scares the crap out of us doing donuts in the church parking lots!

Wanna come move by me and drive me around for the rest of this winter?

Bring your 4-wheel drive with you. :)
