I is for ice

Local blogger Conner, on his blog, aptly named Conner’s Blog, has produced a thorough and fitting A-Z of winter driving in Minnesota.

Here are my three favorites:

Death Grip – How a percentage of drivers hold the wheel, panicking at the first flake and don’t stop until the last ice melts off Lake Minnetonka.

Matchbook Mark – The Nickname of the drivers who refuse to scrape their windshield and drive with a matchbook sized area to see through until their car defrosts itself.

Traction – Frequently taken for granted, many drivers seem shocked to lose it during the first blizzard.
