Post 1639: I braved snow; Andy not so much


Andy decided to take another look at the snow while I was bringing in groceries. “Nope!” he thought, “Still not for me!”


I drove up on the grass and parked so the rear hatch was closer to my front door. After taking groceries in, I had a small problem with traction – see the two bare spots where the tire tracks abruptly slide right?

After a little slide, though, I regained traction and managed to get my car backed into my parking spot on the opposite side of the lane. Just love winter and snow!

  1. Been there, seen it, done it ❄️ Drove a van one time with ABS ~ the brake pedal started shaking, the steering wheel was vibrating, a red lite was flashing plus an obnoxious buzzer!!! I almost bailed out 😉 After moving south to N.E. Tennessee there is only 1, 2 or the most 3 days of cabin fever then back on the porch for a cold one🍺 P.S. Washe cat is 24/7 indoor 🐱 He likes the birds at the window feeder perched in his ‘cat bird’ seat 😉


    • My two are 24/7 indoor kitties, too. Aside from being black cats (which makes them targets to ignorant superstitious people – and they do exist!), I live within a short distance from a highway and a busy main road, neither of which is cat-friendly.

      The ABS on both cars I’ve had with the system pulsed but didn’t make any alarming light show or sounds. It is counter-intuitive to only apply light pressure to the brakes when in a situation where ABS kicks in! I get plenty of experiences each year with the effect, so am used to it now. On the other hand, the brakes on my little VW require a very light touch to do their business, so I’m now used to giving my brakes just the right light touch when ABS kicks in.
