Well, my little smartie was no match for the recent snow & ice in Chicago! After trying to get her out of the garage with about 6" of snow and a sheet of ice underneath, I enlisted my husband's help to push her back in and left her there for the duration. As I walked around town, though, I felt good that mine was not one of the many, many cars I saw spinning their tires, sliding sideways, or even denting their fenders just trying to navigate the side streets. Now that the rain has ridded us of the snow, I reckon I'll go out and get a couple of buckets of kitty litter to put in the back over each wheel--can't hurt, and might come in handy if I need to spread any grit out on the road.
Happy holidays to all--and wishing everyone a more prosperous New Year!
