doesn't take much, right? last fall I got surprised by some freezing fog on the exit ramp from rt 2 w to 495 n & did a little back & forth fishtail on the curve cuz I was going too fast. at the same time a dump truck was heading toward me in the opposite direction getting off 495 curving around to get on 2. there's just a small dirt patch between the two opposing & concentric lanes & I briefly considered how potentially poor a situation it was before something good caught hold & I regained enough traction to straighten it out & continue on the curved ramp to 495. bit of a wake up to the ole adrenaline
