It’s finally spring here, which means that it’s lovely for two weeks before the air feels like soup.
Driving in the Snow
I never learned to drive in the snow. I always tell people I learned to pass an Amish buggy before I learned to drive on an interstate, but despite learning to drive in northeastern Indiana, I never learned to drive in winter weather.

I was never eager to drive, but I did take two different driver’s ed courses as a teen. After getting my license at 18, I immediately headed to college (living in dorms and then taking public transportation or walking), so I never got around to buying a car. Indeed, the last time I was behind […]
