    I was up there yesterday, delivering in St. Cloud, then reloading in Cold Springs. The snow that fell Sunday night into Monday morning is a long way from Minnesota's worst and they had all that going on? Yet they'd come down south where I live and brag about how they're experts in driving in inclement weather and how southerners panic and blah blah blah lol

    It’s not so much the snow but the ice underneath it that is the issue. A lot of folks forget that winter is right around the corner.

    Lots of brake lights on those sliding cars. Going too fast, have a bit of a slide, and force the brake pedal to the floor if it wants to go there or not.

    You're right about that. They got spoiled by the summer months very quickly.

    Lots of refugees that have only ever seen sand flying through the air come here and get their license every year. CDLs, too. And every year, they are culled from the herd in November and December by the first few snow events.

    That seems fair. Let nature and Darwin sort things out.
