Most of my driving life has been right here in good old Billings, Montana. That would be 40+ years worth of winter driving. As I was heading home around 9am for a “lunch” break from work I went up North 27th street. The snow was coming down pretty good. I got to 27th and Poly by the 407 restaurant and people with front wheel drive could not get through the light to turn left. As I got further up next to MSU-B, cars that were trying to turn on to Rimrock Road couldn’t get enough traction. To make things worse, some were backing down 27th in the turn lane. I realize I drive a 4×4 pickup. I am also smart enough to know that 4×4 doesn’t mean squat when trying to stop. I guess today was our first real test of winter ready vehicles, winter ready drivers and winter ready smarts. Drive safe!
