Your knuckles are actually white as you grip the steering wheel – and it’s not just because it’s cold. The wind is equally blowing strong from the north, polishing the roads to a deceptively dull shine. You struggle to have control of your car as that strong north wind keeps pushing you around. You will need to slow down even more, but you don’t attempt hit the brake pedal. You don’t intend to lock the brakes up and slide.
