We had a ground blizzard on Thursday. I do not have any photos because I white knuckled it home at no more than 30 MPH on glare ice.
I was at a longer than normal meeting at the library, from there I made a trip across the parking lot to deliver a package and then I went to Wally World to purchase a new microwave since ours was making weird noises and wouldn’t heat up anything. I may have lollygagged around a bit in the store.
At home Far Guy was fit to be tied. He and Chance took off to find me..he was picturing me in the ditch freezing to death. They gave up their rescue mission half way to town because of the treacherous roads.
When I left home it was snowing a little… no big deal. Four hours later it was a full blown ground blizzard that polished the wet snow that had fallen onto the roadway and created a layer of ice that shimmered in the sunset. However I did not know this..in town it was not a blizzard. I left town unaware. Well I soon figured it out. At that point I wished that I had taken Far Guys cell phone. Oh it was icy..fourteen miles at 30 MPH takes at least a half an hour. Several times I wished my bag with my camera was in the front seat instead of the backseat…buggers.
When I arrived safely in the yard..Far Guy was relieved to see me and Chance wagged his tail ninety miles an hour. Far Guy was a little upset that I did not call..was there a phone at the library..of course there was. Was there a phone at Wally World..of course there was..why didn’t I call?? Because there was no phone booth along the side of the road after I realized I was in a blizzard. I made it home safe..he was just terribly worried about me. He was a mixture of happy and angry all at the same time.
I stayed home and safe all day yesterday. It is suppose to be 48 degrees tomorrow and I am venturing back to town to complete a project I am working on..Far Guy said he and Chance are going to drive me:)
