For those of you unfamiliar with driving in Saskatchewan, in summer the roads tend to be riddled with sneaky pot holes waiting to take a bite out of your tires and sometimes the car itself. In winter they fill up with snow (because they don't all get fixed in the summer) and can have a different effect, as I realised when I hit some ice (again, Boo roads. Boooooo) and managed to regain some friction after hitting a snow covered pot hole. 'Course they can still be very evil and sneaky if they melt and fill up with ice, or it only stops the one tire and the rest of your car goes spinning. That could also suck, but I personally haven't' encountered such pot holes and I really really really reaalllllly hope I never do.
