In my case, this storm hit right at dusk.. temps dropping, mix precip. Roads froze. Rush hour was already started and since VB doesn't have a lot of snow-savvy drivers, it's ultra-unnerving to drive in this weather regardless of your experience level.
I do have common sense and experience, grew up driving in CT. The car just didn't handle well on ice/packed snow and I wasn't the least bit surprised. I WAS surprised that shutting off TC helped so much.
I am not testing my car out in this weather, I am a pet sitter and it's my job to not flake out when we have bad weather. I happened to be in between 2 different jobs when this hit, with 3 more behind it so I had no choice but to go slow and pray.
