Sliding Sideways

With all the snow we've had recently and the warmer daytime temperatures there has been a lot of melting going on. Just this morning, in the dark, when the temperatures were back below freezing, I was on dry roads until I reached the highway ramp and found that it was covered in ice! My car started sliding sideways because of the angle of the ramp and it was quite an unnerving feeling because of the speed in which one is going in order to merge into the traffic on the highway. Thankfully the sliding was only perhaps for a second before my tires slid onto dry pavement again. Had traffic been heavier or if I had been driving faster, things might have been much worse.
