Drivers in the South: Think of making your car tiptoe on these icy roads!

Play that Sugarplum Fairy music from classical music in your heads as you drive. tink tink tink tink tink tink da da da da da da dadadadada!
SLOW DOWN! Think of letting the car TIPTOE along the road. And steer INTO the skid just slightly to regain control of the car.
I drove many times on such roads in Northern Illinois. You can do it. Just possess thy soul in patience.

Oh, and before you go outside, make sure you have tucked your shirt into your pants in back! That icy wind just roars up your back if you don't do this. Pretend you are an Arctic explorer or something. If you need to stay awake, you can suck one of those coffee bags. I used to have a 40 minute drive in the dark both ways.

You can do this. Just breathe and enjoy the sparkles on the snow.
