    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years.

Slippery Roads

Along with the cold/snowy winters and steep hills come slippery Duluth roads. This morning I had a pretty close call on my way to school. I was taking the normal route I always do, however today about halfway down the hill I had no control of my car. I was sliding and there was no way to stop. Thankfully there were no cars in front of me, however at the bottom of the hill is a T. Well, there was no way I was stopping and I didn’t want to turn my car to try and slide into the curb at the T due to a quick thought of possibly rolling my car.

So I decide to keep going straight, but of course there were some obstacles. There were trees to my left and 2 houses to my right. It was either hit the trees or try to squeeze between the houses. My split second decision was to turn away from the trees and go between the houses. I made it through without a scratch. I had to sit there for a second as my adrenaline was pumping and I was very thankful I was okay. I ended up going right back onto the next street and continued on to school.

I think the lesson learned is to find a new way to school during the winter time, leaving early to allow myself more time to take busier routes on cleaner streets. It also is a reminder to take my car in to get the tires looked at, because bad tires in Duluth during the winter = big no no.

There are many responsibilities with having a car in college and now adding poor road conditions throughout the winter make for the need slow down, plan your route, stay home when the road conditions are poor, leave space between other cars, to get your car checked, and much more.

Drive safe out there folks!

Below is the path I took in red and the trees are circled in blue. You can tell where the houses are that I had to go between =/

In red is where I slid, Blue is the trees I needed to dodge, and the houses you can see where I had to go between.
