As we drove back from our two days being trapped in Taupo, we had just gone past the hill next to to Taupo that looks like a volcano. We reached the temporary speed limit as we entered the snow cover pine forest, there was 60cms at one point, I ask can we pull over, the instant response was ''no'', as we keep driving up the first of hills. Suddenly out of know lost traction while punting up the steepest part of out climb, In a instant we start slipping backwards, Dad slams on the hand break. That was cold black ice black ice is when the road is Below negative and the temperature rising and then if rain goes on the negative temperatured road the water will freeze and that's what happened.

Some black ice
