Winter Driving 101

So I'm driving home from my grandmother's house after picking up my mom. It's great Chicago winter weather, which means heavy wet snow. It also means the plows have not made their rounds quite yet, even on Main St.

So as I'm attempting to slow down and turn onto my street I ask my car:
"Car, do you think we can slow down or stop and make this turn?"
My car says, "No, Kevin, I can't let you do that." And we slide on past the turn.
"How about here into this parking lot?"
"Not gonna happen."
"This next side street?"
"hmm...OK."

So I made a U-turn and crept back to my street without registering any speed on the speedometer.
