Not missing that stuff at all - not to mention the power being out because of ice build up taking out a power line...so you are trapped at home without the everyday luxury items we are used to like TV and of course heat/ac. Speaking of heat - don't miss those heating bills especially on those days you get so cold outside, no matter how high you crank it, you just can not get warm.

NYC, 1984, Gun Hill Road..... took a three block slide bouncing off several parked cars and ended up against a light pole.

Total insurance bill = $14,000

Company car. :)

It doesn't take a PhD in Physics to understand ice is slick and you can't drive like your in Nascar.

Agreed. Specially considering I was doing 3mph at the time. :dizzy:

I have talked to some PhDs, and in their opinion, they believe I was the victim of prejudicial gravity forces once I became upon the slight but long downhill in front of me.

To this day, I remain completely befuddled as to what exactly happened and why.... no clue whatsoever.... but then again, I do not have a PhD. :rolleyes:

Ric, I have to have T's back on this one. In the north on the Ice at times you do not even have to accelerate - gravity does all the damage for you. However down here I have seen how our locals drive in Rain....score for worst drivers FL 1 northerners 0 .

How do they drive in the rain? I can always tell a local vs someone from the continent when it rains. A local slows down, someone from the continent drives as though they have AWD and it is a dry road. In other words, 10 MPH over the speed limit and too close to the car in front of them.
