Winter Driving Tips from a Wild Rider!

Susie Lindau's Wild Ride

I love winter driving, especially in snowstorms! The snow makes beautiful patterns as it streaks across the windshield and the challenge of keeping the car on the road gets my adrenaline pumping similar to skiing down a mountain.

Loved the post especially your beautiful description of the snow. Sharing now.


    1. Awww! Thanks so much and for sharing!
      I love your description of drinking hot cocoa. I remember the Smokey Mountains. I’ve driven through them a few times. So very beautiful! Stay warm girls!
