I know the avid snow sport enthusiast can’t wait to get back out on the slopes and trials. I have on many occasions enjoyed a wonderful run down a freshly powdered slope. But I’m not sure I’m ready to deal with winter driving just yet.

I was reminded of what’s to come as I made my way through a down pour of rain/slush/snow/hail all mixed together while driving I-15 earlier in the day. So to my fellow drivers. If it’s really coming down…slow down!!!!! If you’re driving 85 and can’t see more than 15 feet in front of you there is at some point going to be a problem and you are really going to be late to wherever you’re going. And remember, SUV’s can’t stop on ice any better than other cars so don’t drive like you’re invincible.

Ok, I’ve got that out of my system. And so you know I drive an SUV for work so I’m speaking to myself here as well.

Feel free to leave your driving tips as well below.
