I drove in the snow today!

For the first time since moving to Minneapolis, I drove while it was snowing. Granted it was a light snow and the highways were clear but the secondary roads still had snow and ice on them. That's a big accomplishment for this southern girl!

While I was out I also stopped at Michael's to buy some beads. I want to try some beaded crazy quilting but I'm going to start on a small scale with some postcards.

Good for you! Soon you will be snow driving like a pro!

I don't drive with our children when it is snowing anymore. A heavy snow that is. But I will venture out if I am alone, in town only.

The above would be me...I couldn't spell....

Anyway, good for you, driving in the snow! I probably wouldn't...I'm such a southern weenie!

I do hope I'm getting one of the beaded postcards...please? :)

I used to live in Indiana and drove in the snow all the time. Don't know if I would do it today!

Wasn't it fun!!?? I love driving in the snow - when there's aren't any crazies around.

After growing up in Arizona, I am with you on not feeling very confident about driving in the snow. But when I do, it is quite a sense of accomplishment.

I was wondering if you would drive in the snow!
figured you just walked every place. You seem to live close to a wonderful down town that has everything.

Living where there is often snow - it is a common for me to drive in snow. I INSIST on very good tires - it does make a big difference. If it is all icy and I am going down a BIG hill - I will often shift into a lower gear instead of using the brakes. However - if it is icy I usually just try to stay home because ice is a whole different story than snow! Take care of yourself out there!

Cheers!
