So rough guess it'll suck for about two weeks. My usual advice: Fluids, Tylenol, Netflix.

at least he's alive I guess. 

I learnt my lesson on ice about twelve years ago. It was Christmas eve and was racing around the countryside trying to deliver presents to friends before we flew out to NZ. On the way to the next village I went safely through a couple of hairpins and thought, man, that was lucky, must slow down on the way back.

So on the way back I gently touched the brakes

just in front of the hairpins and before I knew it I was doing a 360 downhill, left the road and was plummeting towards an apple tree in about 10 cm of fresh snow. That snow saved me as I suddenly realised I had some control over the steering again and managed to avoid the tree, gun the gas and get back up on to the road. Heart beat went up a few notches. It all happened so fast.
 
Never, ever hit the brakes on ice.  That is of course that you know you are on ice or worse, black ice.  Foot off the gas pedal and gently steer until you are safe or hit whatever you're going to hit.  I always do periodic brake checks to see what kind of traction I have or don't have, just in case something suddenly goes wrong in front of me.

This morning was ton's o fun as we had sleety ice under the snow.  No brine or any kind of pre treatment since it rained washing everything away before changing to sleet to ice to snow. The wiper transmission linkage broke on my 04 Civic (I absolutely hate, hate, hate its ABS in the snow) on the freeway going into work this morning.  It was still snowing.  That was fun.  Limped on home 15 miles away via side streets to keep spray off the windshield from other vehicles so I could somewhat still see.  $300 later, it is already fixed. Actually $800 since I had them finally replace the back struts while they had it.

Just another day in paradise ...

Glad everyone is still alive to be able to tell their stories.

That particular morning was super hairy all over. I was driving the Jeep and I had to put it in 4WD to pull away from the curb. When I got to work I texted both kids to make sure they didn't try to drive anywhere, just home. Then I heard about the wreck. 

I slid off the highway once, doing maybe 35mph, and didn't really spin at all. It was a long slightly curved stretch of road and I remember looking out the driver's side window at the scenery, then watched as the mountain moved to the windshield... I'd sort of drifted maybe 60° off track so slowly I didn't notice. I gently nudged the wheel to the right just a hair and that straightened things out but I was going straight while the road was arcing to the right. I slid over the center line, oncoming car about 100 yards away, so I aimed for the ditch and was down off the road well before the car got to me. Kept up my speed and like you the grass let me hit the gas and after the car passed, I nudged it back up onto the road, missed a reflector pole and eased back into my lane like I knew what I was doing.

Learned today that the car going the other way carried a guy I know from the ski hill. 2 broken ankles, broken wrist, broken pelvis etc. although the pelvis might be "hip" i.e.: not quite so bad. But he's one bunged up guy. First surgery complete. Long rehab time ahead but he works for a place that I assume has something approaching Cadillac insurance so he should be more or less okay in that regard. He's a welder, though, so not going back to a desk job.

Yeah the mother, from what I gather, has lost a husband and a brother (cousin?) in two separate incidents in the past 5 years too. Possibly both self-inflicted. I know a lot of the family but not her. She's a grade school teacher in the next town over.
