Auto trans - Reverse gear just revving on ice...

Well, the street where I live is still solid ice, and while trying to reverse up into my driveway, it's like nothing was engaged. Just revving with no transfer to the tires, they weren't even try to spin. I turned around and went onto my driveway, put it back in reverse and it went down fine. Can the traction control cause something like this? Or can I be facing some transmission issues in the immediate future?

No, the traction control will not let you rev it, so problem is most likely transmission....

Aww, not what I was hoping for. Maybe I should keep her at home until I can get it looked at. Hate to be parked somewhere and have it act up again :/ Strange I didn't get any lights showing up on the dashboard.
