For my regular car I keep a gallon bucket of floor dry compound to throw under the tires( the compound not the bucket) to get traction when I get stuck.

Love driving on ice...especially sleet ice, you can get up to a decent speed in 4-Hi. Like snow too. Black ice sucks. These folks down here in South Carolina have no concept of snow and ice driving. Well, maybe in the extreme up-state area, but not in the Lowcountry.

if you don't know or have never driven in the snow, go slower then everyone else or stay of the road.... I'm getting tired of being rear ended.
