No way am I going out on the roads to take photos today, even though they probably would be beautiful.
As it was, I nearly slid off my own porch when I took Cody out to do her morning business. Thanks heavens that fence comes right to the steps so I could hang onto it, but even so my feet kept slipping out from under me. Hopefully none of my neighbors was up that early on a Sunday morning ’cause I’m sure I made quite a spectacle of myself.
According to the local news:
- an incoming plane slid off the runway at the airport – thankfully no one was hurt;
- a driver lost control and his/her vehicle and wound up under a tractor-trailer, which then ended up sliding sideways and blocking the entire road – there’s been no word yet as to the fate of the car driver, but it doesn’t look good from the news photos;
- a salter truck slid off the road about a mile from my house.
My car can sit where it is until tomorrow. That remote start is going to get a real workout. Of course, I forgot to set the car to defrost mode, but hopefully by the time I go out at least some of that ice will have melted off (and I nearly slid off the porch a second time trying to take the photo!):
Stay in and stay warm, everyone.
