ABS vs Snow Depth

Nah, deep snow you beach the sniveller and its
out with the shovel. The furthest thing from your mind is ABS.

But in very shallow snow, turn off ABS if you would rather
stop than steer. I re-confirmed this yesterday in our first
microsnowfall of the winter.

It's oh-so-embarrassing listening to the ABS
dugger-dugger-dugger as you proceed majestically onto a
busy intersection at epsilon meters per second.

A frantic scrabble for the switch, followed by
a satisfying scrunch as the front wheels dug through
to the dirt underneath was all the proof I needed.
