Gene Bivins said...

It's the Coronation Anthem "Zadok The Priest" by George Frederick Handel.

The Title should read: Why wimps go South for the Winter............. :-)

I really liked the man and the swimming pool.....the pool never gave an inch. Funny stuff until it happens to you. Three different times in my 67 years, I have fallen and broke 1 to 2 ribs. Like I said, it is still funny stuff.

The guy at 2:20 is wearing a 1 direction sweatshirt.. he's around 20 yrs old so it doesn't seem right. The rest is funny, til it happens to you - then it's just embarrassing.

best thing to do.....stay inside, watch vidio's, and let the nuts go outside.

SageNot said...

Where were the tire chains at least?

Selma Gilardi said...

Thats why we are in florida

Pastor Jeanne said...

Tire chains don't work on ice - only on snow. Snow on top of ice is worse.

evodevo said...

That's why I have studded tires !!

Georgia sue place said...

Funny, funny brings back memories.

rufusclaret said...

That music was composed for the Coronation of George II and has been played at every coronation since. Vivaldi's Four Seasons (Winter) might have been more appropriate!!

AK Oldman said...

Actually, chains work very well on ice as long as they are the correct size and the driver isn't expecting miracles. A majority of the drivers in the video did not know how to drive on ice . Look at the tires. Almost all were locked up. When you lock your wheels, too much brake force, you lose steering. If you don't have an anti-lock braking system, ABS, you need to pump the brakes so they won't lock up. You'll eventually come to a stop and while doing so you'll also retain the ability to steer.

That's why smart ol' southern boys stay in the south in winter!

Happy in the South said...

Orthopedic physicians LOVE this weather !!!

Bubba Z said...

I Love Winter! Stupid drivers let off of the brake!!!

Christine Ehlers said...

Just hilarious/hope no one was hurt!

globalcrap said...

No global warming there.

HRABX said...

I'm from Minnesota but I live in Australia now. This summer (winter up there) was so hot, Regularly over 40c 105f. I actually miss the snow and all that goes with it.

Stephanie Donovan said...

If your going to jump in the pool in the dead of winter you know there is going to be some degree of pain! That was so funny!

Marnie Tunay said...

poor things. Winter tires, people. Think about it.

msmaui said...

Definitely don't miss this part

Marilyn L Meyer said...

Ice is the great equalizer.

Kathy White said...

How to you call in that your plow truck fell into a .....

Randy Hurst said...

CALIFORNIA NEVER LOOKED BETTER--HATE THE SNOW.

Snowkidding. said...

All the cars near the beginning had drivers jamming the brake pedal to the floor, and that's why they are sliding uncontrollably. Stay off the brake and retain some rolling resistance - and maybe some control. Tough to do too, because it's natural reaction to step on the brakes. Gotta train yourself not to do it. Try it - you'll like it.

Anita Baysinger said...

It brought back memories! N
o more of that excitement when you were spinning down the road without any control. I LOVE CA more whenever I watch the weather reports!!

TED DE said...

That was my driveway yesterday

greg said...

people vs gravity is more like it

Anara Zhakupova said...

Ужасно! Сколько людей получают переломы... а может и погибают в результате несчастных случаев на скользкой поверхности? А что, автомобили в Канаде не "носят" шипованную резину?

Jes said...

...which aren't legal in many states. Clothes line will work in a pinch.

Tony DePasquale said...

Brings back many memories. Now I remember why I moved.

Chris Place said...

Been there. Don't need snow or ice! Ouch!!

FreeJeffDubay said...

Winner... Winter

Full Otto said...

And you strong, brave people cannot have guns and can only drink 16 oz sodas.

Andre' said...

Makes me want to leave the South and retire up North with all the cold weather.... NOT!

lml82 said...

slip sliding away.

Laurahubka said...

I live in Iowa we have guns and drink whatever I want. That was an uneducated comment Full Otto.

Angel Eye said...

i like summer more

M kurtis said...

Now I know why my grandparents moved to Southern Califonria 90 years ago

hjs3 said...

Been there, done that and don't miss it much...

Ken said...

Once you go past 90 deg of rotation, you need to keep the brakes locked as you have to control when the tyres will regain traction. If you think you are rally hot stuff, try releasing the brakes when you are approaching 15 deg alignment but you had better hope you returned the steering back to straight ahead! Otherwise you'll do what the idiots that run in the back of the pack in Nascar do, have the tyres regain traction when you are about 45 deg off and likely backwards, taking out a couple of others with you!

Joanadele said...

I'm headed for Mexico! Might be less dangerous.

bit_torrent said...

For you ice walkers out there! Five years ago I took a 4' length of hardwood hand railing and drove a heavy nail into one end leaving an inch exposed. I than ground the head off the nail and have a good grip when walking on ice. I'm 67 y/o have horses that I tend in icy conditions and haven't fallen once.



I must add that I've never suited up and jumped into a frozen pool though. Isn't it all just common sense?

bit_torrent said...

P.S. hand rail has a flat side and fits the hand as a finger grip nicely...

Lois said...

Ten million ducks can't be wrong....see you in the spring!

yoda said...

tatstefully hiliarious!

Lee Roberts said...

VSanderson said...

I'd love to know how they got that skier (at approx. 2:06) back out of that snowdrift!

Vanessa said...

This is the funniest thing I have ever seen! Especially when the snow fell off the man's roof and he yelled !!!

Daryl said...

Three cheers for global warming!

erathqgt57awryt said...

don't miss this a bit!

paulj1938 said...

Thank you for music ID

Rattlerjake said...

And that's why Florida is so f*cked up, All the northern libtards move there and have tried to make it southern NY.

Lori M Richards said...

Need spikes for your shoes. I live in CO, good times.

Maureen79 said...

Definitely Cleveland, Ohio! Of course, the next day it might be 55 degrees!

ken h said...

Rename this to people without winter tires

frank said...

I promise I will not complain about the heat in Brisbane.......until next summer.!!

Issis said...

Enjoyed watching this on May 6th, as my friends in the NE are still dealing with winter cold and snow ... I've been in shorts and a T-shirt all "winter" in sunny FL ... make fun of the state, if you will, but warm weather, water birds, tropical gardens and year-round gardening is my ideal.... oh ... and the nearby beaches and soft sands are not bad either..

RX: CHAINS AND CLEATS

Sidney Bud White said...

I was born and raised up north.and then joined the Navy. When I was sent back for discharge I was stationed in Kodiak, Aalaska. When I was discharged I promised myself I would never live anywhere it was cold. I am now 75 and have only lived in California and Florida. You can call me a wimp but I think I was smart. You can have the cold weather.

AKH said...

too bad there was a guy wearing a 1 direction tshirt, KARMA

DesertRat said...

I would like you to call us a wimp when u get get in your car in the middle of the day during a 122 degree afternoon here in Phoenix!

Mohan said...

This is absolutely true situation in cold countries in winter…I experienced
such incidents many a time in Russia/CIS, Finland, Sweden, Holland, Germany, Switzerland,
Canada, even in USA…You need to be very careful and know how to balance each of
your step while walking on snow…Mohan S Negi

Mohan said...

Cool...You missed the other side of life Man...Still there is a chance and be brave enough....

Mohan said...

hahahaha...lucky you are...since you did not pass the life out in those experiments...Long live John...

Mohan said...

Cool...I remember my experience in December 2002 in New York...It was just great snow experience in USA...
