Tonight and tomorrow we are going to get rain, sleet, snow and blowing slush. The most dangerous is the rain. You see with a 33 degree rain we will have black ice in places. Black ice is more slippery than snot on a door knob. I have a GMC 4WD pickup with an Eaton locking rear end and last week I slid off the pavement due to black ice in the post office parking lot! If you don't need to travel, enjoy the weekend by the fire with a cup of hot tea or a toddy.

When "involuntary tobagganing" on black ice that is more slippery than snot on a door knob, always remember to hand your beer to a passenger. You dont want to spill it as you go into the snow bank.
