Snow Fade

It has not snowed since 3pm on Tuesday and today was 43 degrees, so of course it has been melting, and I'm okay with that. However, I forgot to mention last time that on Tuesday Michael wanted us to get groceries so we walked a mile (each way) to Winn Dixie. On Facebook I wrote: Now I can honestly tell my grandchildren, "When I was your age, I walked two miles in the snow to get groceries." ;) The walk was a good adventure, and I was bundled well, but it was scary when we got to the main highway and saw cars sliding along the road or their back wheels spinning, unable to get a truck up the hill. A dark blue SUV tried to make a U-turn over the median but then got stuck until some guys ran over and pushed the car the rest of the way. One person couldn't even back out of a parking space. A lot of people on Facebook were comparing the roads to Walking Dead, due to all the wrecks and abandoned vehicles.
Yesterday we went for another walk, only half as far- out of the complex and to the main highway. My main goal was to have a snowball fight with Michael. He played around a little bit, but not as much since he doesn't have gloves. There was still a traffic jam outside of the complex from a little pile up the other day. One truck went off the road and some other vans and cars skidded into each other. They were lucky compared to a few cars we saw on the news that went into a lake! Fortunately, the drivers from the lake were interviewed and all made it out safely.
 ^^That creepy trench coat man behind Michael was actually a good Samaritan. He was scraping ice off the road. Although that didn't stop one car from hitting a tree in the median at 5 MPH going down that hill. ^^ When Michael got bored, I had a snowball fight with myself!
Today the roads were 90% fine when Mrs. Patty dropped Michael off at his car so he could bring it home. I have never driven in anything other than rain, so I was a wimp and didn't want to take him. Michael said it was just some of the back roads that still had ice. Tomorrow afternoon I will check the main roads for myself because I have an interview at Massage Envy. I hope I get it! But that's up to God's plan and this year I have been praying the "correct" way.

  1. Once again, I love the crispness of your photos!! I LOL'd at how the roads looked like The Walking Dead- it's true!! And then when the picture of the man behind Michael appeared, I REALLY thought of TWD! RUN MICHAEL!!!
