Laws of Physics
Well, our first major snow storm arrived Saturday. I was in Denver attending a reading of Gunslingers & Ghost Stories. On the way back home there were cars in ditches everywhere. The road was quite icy and very slick. And, just like every year, most of the cars in the ditches were four wheel drive SUV's because the people who drive them seem to always think the laws of physics don't apply to these cars. Well, you can have all the acceleration on ice you want, but four by four doesn't stop any better than any other car. Twas a good night for being in the tow truck biz.
