Mollydog goes boing

Car and Dogs

Car bit:
Today was probably the first time with the Saab that I have really missed the 4WD capabilities and able handling of the Impreza.   The road was very icy today.  The Impreza used to sail through that sort of thing, but the Saab showed a bit of a tendency to stagger sideways, even though its weight should really hold it down to some extent, and it certainly has big enough tires for grip. 

It also displayed a panicky little 'I am losing my grip!' icon.  I'm not sure what the point of that was, unless it meant that some clever piece of machinery was activated, but as I did slide gently into a hedge at one point, it can't be that clever.  Still, no harm was done.
