If it’s not snow to clear from the car before pulling out to work …
… it’s ice.
My Chevy Cruz had a thin layer of freeze all over it on Wednesday morning in the Galeville neighborhood in Liverpool.
I thought maybe that a few minutes running with the defrosters on would take care of it. Nope. The scraper had to scrape.
The driveway did not look daunting for the back-out.
But then I had to decide which way to maneuver out of the neighborhood out to the main drag.
I feared that the steeper hill might cause a problem at the end, where it spills out into traffic at a stop sign.
The other direction is a longer path, but with less of a grade.
I went the way with less hill. No problem.
