What's the point of having 4-wheel drive?

What the hell? I thought 4-wheel drive was supposed to help in these icy conditions. The sun has been out all day, melting the snow and ice. So I figured mid-afternoon was an okay time to go run to the dry cleaners and swing by the store for some protein powder. Plus I have all time 4-wheel drive, so I should be okay, right?

I got about 3 blocks and reached my first stop sign. I put on the brakes but kept going...and going...and going. There I am with my brake to the floor but NOT stopping. Granted I probably only slid a couple feet. But it was so terrifying that it felt like a mile. After I finally stopped, I promptly turned around and drove right home...extra slow.
