I hear you.  I just drove home from camp.  I had read the forecast last night and wanted to leave earlier than scheduled to make it to the interstate before dark.  It was near whiteout conditions in the mountains at times.  All the way I was mostly alone, even when behind the plow for about 10 miles.  We got to the interstate and sure as I figured, the road conditions were better, but the winter dumb-dumbs were all out.  No less than four different cars off the road on the south bound side alone.  An accident with fire and ambulance on the northbound side.  I drove safely and avoided the dumb-dumbs as best I could.


From white outs, I ran into sleet, snow and then freezing rain for the last hour.  Safety first.  We got home, an hour and a half later than normal.  So what, we were in one piece and safe. 


Here's to all the safe drivers! :beer:  :beerchug:

Mid to upper 60's today and tomorrow lower 70's then On Wednesday rain and possible sever storms then cooler on Thursday and Friday in the 50's. 


Good Idea to stay home. No sense running the risk of something bad happening.
