Ice is Only Dangerous for Some of Us!! It is a Mind Game!!

Yesterday the roads were treacherous in our neck of the woods.

All the stations were saying stay off the roads.

I had an appointment with a client 35 miles away and slipped and slid in my Suburban the whole way.  I had to cancel two days ago and was not going to cancel twice.

My wife called me while I was on the way and said...turn around...yeah sure honey.

I had the photos with me of the ranch this client owns and he is thinking about selling.

I told him I would have them to him by Christmas.   (Sostad Forest Ranch)Sostad Ranch Loup County, NE Mike McCann Nebraska Farm Broker

So neither rain...nor sleet...nor other vehicles in the ditch were going to derail my goals.

We had a great conversation and some laughs and he loved the 150+ photos and especially the 2 -  8 x 10's. We had a great 2 hour chat.

I got back to town in time to pick my wife up from her work and drive her to the bank as she hates driving on ice.

So how does this all factor together into my title?


When I got home...the neighbor kids were out Ice on the drive in Nebraska Mike McCann Nebraska Land Brokerplaying on the ice...and they were not intimidated at all by the slippery driveway.

Today the other neighbor kids poured water to make driveway slicker...

I think back to my younger years when I was not intimidated and laugh and think maybe I was just to dumb to realize how dangerous ice can be.

Until next time...Be safe out there.....

If you are intimidated by ice, you will be scared to death of driving on icy roads.  I know its dangerous, but slowing down helps a lot

Good morning Mike. Would have done the same thing under the circumstances. It is the way you are wired. Enjoy your day!

Hi Jay - good post by Mike.  It is amazing how we loved ice and know when we were kids.

Black ice is the worst in our area Mike. No matter what you're driving there isn't a tire out there that can give extra grip on ice.
