We went from yesterday's post of lush green grass to snow today! It has been raining all day, imagine that! I decided to go ahead and head to the gym after work. Figured it couldn't get too bad while I was there. Ran 3 miles (in 28:34!!!!!!) and decided to head out. Went outside and the cars were covered in sleet.
The husband started calling me as soon as I got in the truck asking if I was at home. I told him I was leaving the gym. WHAT? YOU WENT TO THE GYM! That was his reaction. He said it had been snowing at his work for about an hour. Told me be very careful on my way home and call as soon as I got there.
So I started my normally 40 min drive home. The majority of my drive home is on a busy highway. So with all the traffic and the temp just now dipping below freezing, the road was still okay. But these people around here thought the ideal speed was 30! Luckily it's a four lane highway and I just stayed on the left and cruised along.
The last twelve miles of the drive are along farm roads that aren't used much. So of course, I slowed way down on them. The roads were covered and I figured getting a little slick. Sure enough, right before my turn, there was a SUV in the ditch. Another truck had slid thru the stop sign and the fence at the "T". And another truck was on the other side of the turn in the ditch!
I turned the corner and made my way on home. They were sittin' in their vehicles and another person had stopped for the one that had gone thru the fence. It was just a mess. I slid more on the dirt road than any where else. It was one slick puppy!
Speakin' of slick puppy, Diesel tried jumping up against the door after I got home and busted it on the porch. Had to laugh.
Anyhow, the roads are gonna be a mess in the morning. I have court tomorrow but it will be postponed until later in the day most likely. I really hate getting on the interstate with these crazy drivers. It's bad enough when it's just rain! Y'all be careful out there!
