mile trip.  Then the Sh..., uh, stuff hit the fan.  Driving conditions
deteriorated in a major way.   Two tire tracks defined the right hand lane
of I-81 and I-66.  The left hand lane was anywhere from 1 inch to 4 inches
of slush.  Of course, traffic was putting along at about 25-30 mph in the
two tracks.  Although it required intense concentration I was cruising at
about 60 most of the way.  Ain't quattros wonderful!  I think I prefer
driving in slush to driving on glare ice but only by a small margin.

several of them were not with their shiny sides up.  It was something of a

During this drive I figured something out.  It appears that many if not
most drivers are instant hazards.  Just add water in any form.
