Tried to make a emergency run to the big city to pay a bill
that was overlooked and is due MONDAY. Started out and
about five miles down the I-94 we detoured and came back
home. Could not see over about 4 cars in front of you. Snowing
so hard it looked like a blizzard. Sis wanted to go on, I said NO
turn around and go back. Snowy and icy roads I really dislike
so I was kind of reluctant to go in the first place.
We started back home and it got
even harder. The roads had not been plowed and now the
passing lane was getting very very slippery. One lane of
traffic and we saw one in the median with it’s lights flashing. We
went about 45 miles an hour and the worst part was getting
onto the on ramp. YIKES… Five cars got off with us
at the exit and each one swerving to stay on the road.
We crept over the bridge going about 15 miles an hour.
Roads in town were not plowed either, it was Sunday. We have
not heard a plow since FRIDAY.
As soon as we got home I went out to snow-blow the driveway.
The snow had let up some and I thought maybe it would stop.
FAT CHANCE… It kept getting worse and I finally stopped.
WE have nearly 4 inches of new snow!
We were not in any watch, advisory or warning area. It just
came out of nowhere. Guess Monday is supposed to be a better
day than Sunday so maybe just maybe the crews will be cleaning
off the freeway. This business of not plowing the highways on a
SUNDAY unless it is urgent is ridiculous… the lady in the car
aside the road will tell you!
In this kind of winter weather I sure would
not want to be in a crowd of millions in the cold.. I heard today
that Obama’s speech will be 17 minutes long. Nice that he is taking
into consideration the temps and the many hours that people will
be standing waiting for the big event. I will be watching as I know
it will be most memorable.
HAVE A GREAT MONDAY!!
