So I went to Lowe's at the Landing to pick up some rock salt on Sunday. It was a pure sheen of black ice with hardly any cars around. Man, power sliding and AWD is fun, but that hasn't stopped me from ordering some Blizzaks for a winter set.

I did that too. Drifted until I puked. So much fun!
I love how the AWD system is RWD biased.

I'm running on summer tires, so I have to be careful on hills, braking and ice.
