Sensitive yaw accelerometer

We just had bad weather. First, it thundered and dropped a bunch of hail, then it froze and dropped 2-4 inches of snow on top. OK, everybody, can you say lethal...

Course, because the rest of the team drove in for our meeting this morning, I had to make my way in also. Wasn't so bad going in but coming home was pretty scary. The water under the many bridges across the highway had frozen. My butt/yaw meter was screaming at me under every bridge as my Ford Exploder started rotating slightly when it hit the ice patches under the bridge.

Worst part is, nothing you can do. You make it under or you don't. If it went then you're done. It's ice. Still, car parks are fun for developing a sensitive yaw instrument/butt when the weathers like this...
