I don't know if y'all remember my move last year from Houston,Texas all the way up to Boise area Idaho. I am in snow shock 100%! It's so unbelievably gorgeous BUT it is so scary to me! We live approx 40 min N of Boise and my hubby works for a car dealership in Boise so his hours are awful which means he has to drive really early and really late some days. We were forced to drive last week right after a quick snow storm hit (we had been i Target lol) and I cried on the way home. We had to go 24mph(which might I add felt like 124mph) in a 55 just like everyone else. We started to spin... the car in front of started to spin... it was scary! Any great advice to calm my nerves? I've already got prayer going on Tonight we're under a winter advisory. This Southern girl doesn't know what hit her lol
See if you can find out about a winter/safe driving course in your area, it would be beneficial to you (and other drivers). People who are either too careful, or not careful enough are the most dangerous drivers.
Since I live in Canada, it's something you tend to get used to really.
Thank you for the suggestion. I didn't even know they had those. I refuse to drive on the roads if it's snowing or icy. I'm a stay at home mom that homeschools so I'm blessed there. My husband drove in icy conditions in North Texas so he's not traumatized about it like I am. He's a good driver. I am too just not in this lol and I would do no one any good on the road right now - esp me I've heard about chains you can put on your tires during winter... Do those do any good?
There are a number of areas that do not allow chains, in fact as far as I know, most places don't due to the fact that unless the roads are always covered in X amount of inches of snow, you will rip up the roads.
Thank you ladies! It's nice to know that I'm not the only person who finds it scary. Then today there was a dense fog advisory with a possibility of 0% visibility and icey roads. :O These are things you don't have to deal with in the deep South so it was unheard of to me.
Before next year I'm def. going to look into taking that class and getting some chains!
