Dec 23rd Weather brought ice rain this week. Minuscule sleet fell down for hours making a very sticky slush mixed with snow and salt. At night some secondary roads were covered by an irregular layer around 7cm (3in) of wet slush at a temperature of -7 Celsius (19F). The entrance to my street is a steep curve going up and the exit a steeper curve downwards. I was thinking any vehicle would have problems with these conditions going either way. Nokian R2 SUV tires made it feel very safe, despite a bit of movement of the RAV4, tires kept track pretty well and safe.
