An Aussie response to The Great Toilet Roll Panic.๐Ÿ˜‚

I don't have children to shelter from any mean truth, but this still feels like an approach to the world I understand.

Went for a drive last night in a fiesta van.
about an inch of snow lay on the high ground which is nothing to worry about normally.
However, this Van had absolutely no traction at all, no drive and no steering above 15mph!
a terrifying experience all in all.
Turned out it was running Summer tyres on the front and Snow tyres on the rear.
P.S. Not my vehicle and, I survived.
