11 tips to avoid a winter pileup from a pro trucker

Road & Track By Alan Wrobel | Road & Track Wed, Jan 8, 2014 2:51 PM EST

In eight years as a truck driver, Alan Wrobel has driven 810,000 miles (accident-free) in 45 states and Ontario. He now covers Ohio, Michigan, Ontario, and Wisconsin for a beverage distributor. Here's some of his advice on how to handle yourself when the snow starts falling the rest is on the blog

When is Cold-Weather Driving Riskiest?

You face the greatest risk of losing traction on snowy, wet roads when temperatures are between 22 and 35 degrees Fahrenheit. At colder temperatures (10 to 20 degrees or less) snow-covered and icy roads afford more traction than at those warmer (22 to 35 degree) temperatures.

Don't believe it? Try this: Take two ice cubes. Place one in a deep freezer for 30 minutes. Drop the other in a glass of water. Try picking it in up with your fingertips. Notice how slippery it is? After 30 minutes, get the other ice cube from the freezer. My bet is it practically sticks to your fingers for a bit.

The same principle applies to driving. The ice is almost sticky in more extreme cold. But during heavy and slower traffic, more heat is applied to its surface, and traction will be commensurately reduced.

Ultimately, you're responsible for exercising your best judgment. If the weather is bad, stay put and let road crews do their jobs.

Be safe out there.

Detroit's Brewing History

THU 2014-01-30

Mark your calendar for 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 30 as WSU Press and the Detroit Drunken Historical Society present an evening of Detroit brewing history at Detroit's legendary Dakota Inn Rathskeller (17324 John R. Street, Detroit). John W. Stroh III (CEO of The Stroh Companies, Inc.) will lead the audience through the rich history of Detroit brewing in conversation with Detroit liquor historian (and author of The Guardian Building: Cathedral of Finance) James W. Tottis.

Dakota Inn Interior

While Stroh Brewery (in operation from 1850 to 1985) was Detroit's largest, dozens of breweries opened in the metropolitan area in the last 150 years, and several thrived for generations. From early Anglo-Saxon ale brewers to the present revival by microbrewers, Detroit's brewing history features an impressive ethnic and economic diversity of entrepreneurial families experiencing fortunes and failures throughout the years while contributing to a rich brewing culture that continues today.

National Day of Prayer

THU 2014-05-01

Once again we will be gathering to observe the National Day Of Prayer at Shain Park in downtown Birmingham.

The National Day of Prayer is far more than a day to gather and pray. it is truly part of a much larger prayer movement that is changing the conditions of our culture.

ndp The National Day of Prayer tradition predates the founding of the United States of America, evidenced by the Continental Congress' proclamation in 1775 setting aside a day of prayer. In 1952, Congress established an annual day of prayer and, in 1988, that law was amended, designating the National Day of Prayer as the first Thursday in May.

BE THERE! 11:45am
From 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM.. Location: Shain Park. Bates and Merrill, Birmingham, Mi.
