Left for work at 4:30-ish this morning as usual. Roads are wet, rained last night. This is January right? No problems, traffic clear as normal. Wife leaves to take kid to school two and a half hours later. Temperature drops; black ice. Puts Blazer in ditch and hits tree. Thank God, they are ok. Bruised and shook up. Police officer says this is the tenth slide off he has responded to on this road today. (7:30am)
Two people in the next county over will not be going home tonight. Please be safe, and remember at this time of year conditions can change very quickly.
