Are you prepared to drive in snow?

To all you drivers who think you can will your car through the snow and ice as if by magic: leave your car home! Please don't ruin the drive for the rest of us by thinking your regular tires will somehow magically track you through the snow and ice like a tractor. It's not going to happen. So many years I've seen it now, so many times I've heard that spinning tires on ice as I walk by, laughing at the foolish attempt, thinking, why? Why do people do such stupid things?
I tip my hat to the rest of you who have a shred of common sense, using your 4WD vehicles, studded tires or cables/chains to churn through the snow and ice properly. Thank God there's a few of us left to guide the weak through their periods of unbelievable silliness.
