Yesterday we went for a short Ranger Blue ride in the morning to check on the roads, the snow plow opened the roads. We packed up and headed to town, we saw our accountant, signed the papers and our taxes were electronically sent. Cross something off the list! Then we visited with my parents. It was a good day for my Dad as he knew who I was. He told us once again that he is ready to go anytime the good Lord calls him home.
We headed North and as we drove it got windy and more windy until it was a ground blizzard.
Here is a photo of the ground blizzard when you could still see the road.
I did not take any photos when it got worse and we could not see the white line anymore. Around Crookston Minnesota it was really bad, just out of Crookston there was a huge snowdrift over the road that attempted to pull us into the ditch ( sometimes when you hit a drift it acts funny and pulls you toward the heavy snow it is all part of winter driving) ...Far Guy drove like a race car driver and saved us from the ditch. It was scary.
We arrived back at Andy and Jens safely. Sadie and Little Elvis were happy to see us.
More bad weather is forecast and we will just stay put. No more snowy adventures this week.
Far Guy facetimed with his sister again, she was sleepy.
