Yep, freezing rain directly on the road (with or without snow on top) as bad as it gets.

Since the late 70's up north, I had either a 4X4 pickup or all wheel drive car...and still put studded snow tires on them in the winter.

Sometimes the only thing I could do to stay on the road (crown of road wanted to put you in the ditch), was to almost let it idle in 2nd or 3rd gear...with almost no accelerator input.
Standing up for the underdog and against bullies...every chance I get.

Nice deck! On a lake?

Yes, we live on a small lake (abut 4 miles long) in NC.

25 years here in this house coming up in February. It has been nice, but it is a lot of work.

(Oh, by the way, it will be up for sale in the spring...)
