Did anyone else's car slide halfway down their driveway during the night?

A few years ago I tried to go to work in my Passat, after a very fruitless attempt I gave up and turned around to go home, I got half way up a very small hill on the estate at the time and the front wheels started to spin, so on went the handbrake, released foot brake and I started sliding backwards down the hill, foot brake did nothing, stick it in gear and driving forward slowed me down but not enough, slid back to the flat section where I missed hitting anything!

The snow was compacted under the wheels and gravity took over!

I'd reversed it up the driveway and left it in reverse gear with the handbrake on. Think it's been the snow underneath the wheels that's melted. Next time it's snowing think I'll park at bottom of the street on the flat lol
