AT HOME!
There was a delay getting released, and the snow picked up before we left. Pretty slick 75 mile drive, but made it home safe. Dad sure was glad to get home, and I as well. Not to be critical of Mom & Dad, but inside a car with the 2 of them for almost 2hrs is almost more than I can take! They got to fussing over some pill Dad takes, and here I'm trying to drive on dangerous roads with dangerous drivers. Sure is tough being the one they trust to take care of them! :rofl2::rofl2::rofl2:
Gotta feed silage in a few, but glad to do it! There's no place like home!

Glad you are all back home safe and sound. Got a good chuckle out of hearing about your Dad and Mom arguing in the car... that must have been a really long ride... with or without slippery road conditions!!!

It was a looooong drive! LOL And this is what it looked like when we got home, and more since, plus still snowing. Over 3" when we got home, with blowing snow, what's on the truck looks like we only got 2".

Glad to hear that you all made it home safe and sound. Mom and Dad sound like everything must be back to normal already. Before you know it Dad will once again be breaking the door handles off your pickup.

Wow! That's really snowing. We haven't had too much here lately. It's supposed to get down to -11 tonight with 20+mph wind gusts. I think I'd rather have 12 inches of snow than the bitter cold. Should be a fun day at work tomorrow. Hope they have some inside work for me to do!!

You have a good memory about the door handles Grand! He won't break my replacement door handle now. I made a handle out of 3/8" steel round rod! LOL
