My Ugly Commute home tonight
My commute from piano practice is usually about 30 minutes at 4:30. I left a few minutes ;) early tonight about 4:20, but I didn't get home till almost 7 pm. I have never been in a blizzard like that one, nor do I want to be again. It was white-out for more than an hour. My children slept in the back seat for most of it as I watched big rigs sliding and almost hitting us. I watched police officers who where directing traffic in the middle of the white-out in the middle of a 4-lane highway almost get hit by the big rigs and a Mustang. I was white-knuckled most of the way home! I called a few family members to let them know where I was and that I was still OK, but boy, I was really worried for awhile that I might spend half the night trying to keep my car from icing over. I felt great relief in that I had filled my gas tank first thing in the morning and had placed new windshield wipers on my car just a few weeks ago. But, that said, I didn't feel safe; I didn't have our chains in the car, don't ask why. But God was watching over me. I saw car after car after car slide off the road or just stranded with wheels spinning in the middle of the highway in over 8 inches of snow that looked to have landed in the 1 hour of white-out. For some reason, my car never got stuck in that way or slide. I am glad to be home and that my three children are safe. Good night, all; I am tired. The whole story here.
