My dad always taught me when roads are slick, assume oncoming traffic may come right at you. That has saved me more than once. A Midwestern mom showed quick thinking in a similar situation that likely saved her family's lives and that of the other driver, too.
I grew up with Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck arguing over whether it was rabbit season or duck season. Recently, some midwestern hunters thought it was duck season, but the animal that answered their call was a big ole buck instead.
