The rain turned to ice and then to snow. It wouldn’t have been so bad if we could have stayed home.
Far Guy had an early appointment in Fargo ( 85 miles away). We slipped and slid there early in the morning. His Doctor ordered a CT Scan of his lungs and an Ultrasound of his liver. All tests were completed in 42 minutes. The technician said “I thought for sure you would call and cancel.” Nope we wanted to get it over with. The sun came out and the roads dried out and they were just fine until Detroit Lakes where we stopped for breakfast…blueberry pancakes for me yum! Far Guy had some Chicken Biscuit Gravy thing.
The price of gasoline is under $2.00 a gallon.
The last 33 miles home were icy. Three cars in the ditch. We slid a couple of times. Enough to say “Oh crap” or worse a couple of times.
This car crossed over three lanes of traffic to hit the ditch.
People were driving too fast, and it didn’t help that the wind was gusting to 40 mph.
Winter is here.
I took a photo of the snow stick just before taking my afternoon nap. We were glad to be home safe and sound.
My report: Far Guy does have a gizzard (gallbladder) all these years I thought he was missing his…but I saw it on the ultrasound. He also has a liver, and he has a small cyst on his right kidney…which according to the Ultrasound gal is a normal occurrence.
