The winter weather and driving conditions it can bring can be so unpredictable. But even when we are expecting nasty weather there is a lot of us that still have to show up to work and need to deal with whatever driving conditions that mother nature throws our way. Well, that was on full display recently as Dallas, Texas had lots of freezing rain and snow on top of it which made for horrible driving conditions.  

For multiple days all of the schools were shut down and a majority of people were working from home until the road conditions improved. But for those who were brave enough or just had to make it to their driving destination it was a challenge. And as you know whenever you put too much speed from a vehicle on top of icy roads that will quickly look like a slip and slide, which is what you will see in the video below.
