Well, I've been doing good all winter as far as driving conditions are concerned. Just missed the one day due to weather. Well, today was a NIGHTMARE in the driving world! They closed Sardine at 7:30 am, which was only about 20 min. after I TRIED to go through it. Luckily for me, I got to the park & ride & decided forget it b/c I'm going 20 mph & I'll never make it through.
Well, at 11 am I decided to have the brilliant idea to try & go through the canyon again! Duh - still semi white out conditions with vehicles off the road in spots. Luckily I made it through that time.
Let it be noted the only reason I even attempted to go to school today is because they were having an open house parent question and answer from 6:30-7:30.
Well, I made it to school in about an hour and a half.
I was able to get a few things done after school - mostly copying pages & pages & pages of missing assignments (GRRRRRR). And then, a whopping 4 parents came to the open house! Yeah, whoo hoo!!
Just before 7:30 one of the second grade teachers printed out the current road conditions for me. (Thanks Teri) I was then informed that Sardine was restricted to 4 wheel drive &/or chains! Go Saturn!! So, I called my Dad & asked him if he remembered earlier today when he told me he'd come rescue me if I got stuck. He kindly assumed I was already stuck. Much to his dismay (but he did it anyway) he came through the canyon and met me in Brigham City & then followed me all the way back through the canyon. (Thanks Dad!)
So, I made it back home after nearly 2 hours on the road. It was fairly decent weather on the freeway until you hit the rest stop just before Brigham & then the snow started again. The streets in Brigham looked like they had (and I'm not exaggerating) 10 inches of snow in them!
Good thing tomorrow is another day (hopefully a less snowy day too). Oh, & I got to come home to find that my driveway did not in fact have 5 inches of heavy, wet snow in it. There was only 2 inches in it - superdad plowed me out earlier!
Hope you're having a sunnier day wherever you are!
