Coming to Grips with Cold Weather

South Carolina finally got hit with some real cold weather for the first time in a while and certainly the first real cold weather since I've had summer performance tires on the Miata.  It was about 20 degrees yesterday when I was on my way home from the gym and after a slightly over-enthusiastic 3-2 downshift in a big intersection I wound up parking backwards in my lane.

I thought the car was getting loose really quick at Metrolina for our last autocross in 2013, but this was like driving on ice.  Zero damage, but I did learn how slick these summer tires get when it really gets cold.

Lesson learned.  Time to stop procrastinating and put those all seasons I bought last year back on the car...and clean up the garage while I'm at it...
...okay, AND play with the new GoPro.
