I am surprised that you only remember having ice like that twice in 23 years. I live in Quebec and I see that at least 2-3 times every winter. I lived through the Great Ice Storm of '98, so for me this isn't crazy weather. All the same any freezing rain can be a nightmare for some, and a joy for others. If you can have fun with it, then do so by all means. Heck I sure did. For those who don't know about the '98 storm , check it out. That was crazy once in a lifetime weather. I was one of those without electricity for a full 30 days. It took a hammer and wood chisel to get the ice off the car.

LOL these whole last 3 years have been crazy weather, dont give me that, now all this ice just got covered in a nice thin layer of snow for the morning commuters to feel comfortable on until they skid threw a intersection and get t-boned

Maybe you can't really notice from my video, but i could practically skate down my street.... i dont know about you guys up in Quebec but that doesn't happen here in winter, when it should be snowing

My intention was not to offend you in any way. Maybe I'm just a bit jaded when it comes to freezing rain. I've driven home at a whopping 10-15 kph so many times in the past 27 years. I did say that any freezing rain is a nightmare for some. I have skidded past many red lights and stop signs myself. If you're not driving then it can be fun as your sliding down the driveway shows. If you're just trying to get to the car and keep whizzing past it, then not so much. Even worse when you slam butt into pavement feet in the air. If it's only the 2nd time for you, then yes it qualifies as crazy weather for your area. My bad, apologies.

You're welcome. I do hope you had some fond memories of that experience as well as the bad ones. I got though it relitively unscathed myself, and had a blast at times while being scared out of my shorts at others. Crossing the back yard when the neighbours tree comes crashing down is not something you wish to repeat.
