Holidailies Day 25: Driving

Merry Christmas everyone!

My fun today was that I got to drive my Subaru up over the hill all by myself for the first time. Being a coastal and valley CA native, snow and ice are not a reality I have to deal with all that often. So it was one part exciting, one part slightly terrifying. I found myself trying to recite what ice looked like and the signs of black ice, and how to steer into a slide and all that...

Thankfully, it was pretty dry all the way over. We ran into a flurry, but that was it. What was more fun was stopping in Reno to figure out where we were going next and playing around a little bit in the empty parking lots. I justified it, because I need to know how my car handles in those conditions just in case, right? It's a lot more fun to find out at low speeds with no one around.

I am feeling the effects of stressing out while driving for over two hours though. I got out of the car and had to shake out my shoulders, try and loosen my neck up, because I was so tense. I'm very much looking forward to a relaxing night and hopefully a chill day with family tomorrow.

Hope everyone had a great Christmas!

Until tomorrow.
