Learning to Drive in the Colorado Snow
I have, what I thought, to be the perfect vehicle for Colorado. It is a 4-wheel drive, Chevy Silverado Pickup. Never mind that it has lived in Florida all of it’s life, and I have not crossed anything higher than a channel bridge in 15 years. This snow thing should be a piece of cake. Foolish me. The first time I had to drive on a snowy road, cured me of my over-confidence. I slid left, I slid right, and I scared myself silly. Then I remembered the 4-wheel drive. I did a little better, but I am still an inexperienced Low Lander. I need a lot more practice.
