We had a few inches of snow yesterday, but lucky for me it was a work from home day, so I didn't have to deal with all of the driving headaches. However, I had to go into the office today, and there is still some snow and ice on the roads.
This didn't concern me, but oh, how Chip hates the thought of me driving in icy conditions. Actually, let me clarify: I'm not sure it's me he's worried about so much as our car. And any other cars that may get in my way. And any lawsuit-loving drivers of said cars.
As I helped Chip get the kids loaded into his car, he commented that the side streets are still pretty slick. "I know, I know," I said. When I turned to go back into the house, I heard, "Remember, all wheel drive means that all of the wheels will spin." I responded with a "Yeah, yeah." and a curt wave of my hand. And then I heard, "And hitting the button for the winter setting doesn't turn the car into a snow plow." To which I responded with the one-finger salute.
But damn if he doesn't know me well.
