So even worse than the actual Snowpocalypse has been the aftermath: The roads and parking lots we frequent are now icy death traps. Potholes, abruptly-ending lanes, 12-foot snowbanks obstructing any idea of how safe it is to pull out/merge, and crazy drivers have made for a super stressful week of driving.
Luckily, I have an awesome dad who let me do totally illegal things like start driving 4-wheelers when I was eight years old. I'm a very confident, defensive, cautious (and Joe would add impatient...but only because I am the ONLY person on the road who knows how to drive, duh) driver now, and I think my extra years behind the wheel (or throttle) have taught me well. THANKS DAD!
