I took my mother into Portage today, and drove through the first real snowfall of the season. We’ve had a few flakes here and there but until today, nothing really accumulated. But today we had maybe an inch or so—which, compared to what we can get over the course of the winter—is hardly anything at all. But even so, I still saw one car in the ditch, two accidents, and lots of people sliding all over the road because they slammed on their brakes.

It seems strange that these people live in Michigan (they can’t all be from Florida) year-round, and they completely forget how to drive in snow. Absolutely amazing.
