T-40 : Sandy Gratitude

On the drive home tonight I came down 1000 South.  That's the road less traveled than Highway 33 that comes around the other side of our block.  It was icy but I didn't realize it until near the end of the crossroad with 4000 West.  Interestingly, shortly before I applied the brakes the GPS flipped 180 degrees and showed my triangle driving backwards.  Shortly thereafter I applied the brakes and began to slide.  I had zero traction.  I let off the brake until I approached the dirty intersection, then applied again when rubber grabbed against sand and I was able to come to a stop.  I'm thankful for the road department and their grit!
