Yesterday was not a good day for me to be driving anywhere. You would think that after several years of driving, especially the Winter driving, I would have it down. Don't go too fast, don't slam on the breaks, and definitely watch your surroundings.

My day started out with me sliding around a corner and spinning around a full 180 degrees. I, of course, had an audience. It was great though, I didn't hit anyone or anything, so no harm no foul. I also got a 2 thumbs up from the guy who watched me lose control.

Later on, I stopped by my daughter's house, and I saw the garbage can at the end of her driveway. I be you can tell where this is going. Yes, as I was backing out of the driveway, I hit the garbage can. Of course, I was going slow, so I only moved it about 3 feet, but, still, I hit the garbage can.

My adventures in driving yesterday just proved to me that I should probably read up on some driver safety tips. If you are like me, and want to refresh yourself, here is a link for you, and it's not just about Winter driving. I blame the ice yesterday.
