The winter storm that came through yesterday made for a really interesting day. heading up to the girl friends, I saw a car on the side of the road with it's flashers on. I got over to give them room and started to slow down in case they needed help. It was raining pretty good so I couldn't see for sure what the issues was originally. Then I saw people running around in a hurry. The car slowly started rolling in a circle. One got in an dhit the brake before it rolled down the ditch. In hindsight I wish I'd have hit record on my dash cam. Coming home, early, the wind and snow were really cranking. (The East coast is getting that today.) The plows were out but they were having trouble finding the lanes and before they went 1/2 a mile it drifted over again. I tried to stay in the two cleared lines but kept rolling on the rumble strips at the side of the road. 70 mph speed limit and I was running 35-40. An hour drive took about 2 1/2. Part of that was a family from Minnesota sliding off the road. I thought people from up there knew how to drive in the snow. well, he's a Doctor and their apartment is a block from the hospital, the kid's school is 2 blocks away and mom is a writer. The had an Escalade like mine but newer and with street tires all around. I guess if you never drive, you don't get good. 25 degrre weather with snow blowing up to 40 mph, I gave them a ride to a truck stop. they found a motel about 1/4 mile away that would let them bring the dog so I gave them a ride down to it. From what I could see of their SUV, I suspect it's toast. they hit the ditch hard. At least the motel was realistic. They had a line of folding beds in the dining room for overflow. A lot of truckers and travelers were pulling in because of the storm. I think the family got the last room.
