Anyone up for a drive?

Oh my...

I went for a drive on Tuesday, and what a drive it was! I can't recall the last time I saw that many cars, pickups, and full semi-trucks stuck in the ditch!

Later in the day I heard that the road I went down was on the recommended "don't drive on it" list! I figured it wasn't great when I was driving through a snow storm, going about 50 kph slower than I normally drive that road. Single lane traffic, all going slowly, when it's a two and three lane freeway normally.

Visibility? From fairly decent to downright terrible. Blowing snow. Can't see the lines on the road. Can't see asphalt at times. More snow...

It was a good day to play the tortoise, not the hare!

Um, hmm...maybe Mrs. Spit should lock you in the house and keep you off the road too! You know, you need to stay safe!

Be careful out there!
