Snow pain

Snow in the night. Whoopie if I were A. a kid and B. an owner of a helicopter. I am neither. I had to take hubby to the doc for his follow up from the hospital visit and then he needed to go to work. I talked out loud and did not scream as I steered our little car first down the snow covered driveway- not sliding into the fence and horse pasture near by. Then bumped up onto the scary road. Unhappy drivers followed me as I cruised up to twenty miles an hour. I continued to voice my angst and averted my eyes from the deep dtiches. I did see the deputy with his ton of flashing lights as he assisted a little truck and driver from a ditch. My hope right now is that when I drive back to get my hubby tonight the roads will be melted clear. Wish me luck!

I do wish you luck - driving in snow is no fun at all.

@sallypup It sounds like you have good reason

@jaboUK There's about a 5 mile stretch that has open fields on both sides of the road. There's no protection from snow or wind there.

I hope your roads don't give you too much trouble this winter. Some days I think gravel roads are better.

@paigea I kind of wish we had gravel here, too.

No fun driving in the snow or icy roads.

Hope you made it to your destination. Did things melt off during the day?

@thehorse: its not winter yet! It looks like things are melted. I may drive in to get hubby a bit early so that at least one way will still have day light.

@the horse: I'm done driving for today. Roads were bare tonight though we have a cold, nasty wind blowing.

Our roads they're deadly in the winter even when plowed:/...the problem is the blades clear over the ditches and...in some cases that's a 20 foot drop:/...like, it's hard to see where the edge of the road is and where the drop begins. It wouldn't be so bad if there was a dividing line in the road to give some indication but...there isn't. Sometimes even the plows have ended up in the drop:/

@hebrewgreekstudies I am shivering as I read this. What a mess. What part of Canada are you in?
