Winter Blues

Well, it finally happened. I thought I was going to get in a wreck & die on my way to work! I hit the canyon at about 6:40. Normally it takes me about 20 minutes to get through Sardine. Not today. I could only go 20-25 mph & I was sliding all over the road. I called to get a sub & was going to turn around at Sherwood. Well, Sherwood had like 3 feet of snow in their driveway so I couldn't turn around there. I was hoping I'd make it up the hill on the south side of Dry Lake! I was going to turn around at the state sheds but their driveway was full too. I finally hit Brigham (the bridge where you can get off) & was able to turn around. It took me an hour to get to Brigham & back! I'm just glad I made it back in one piece. I'm also glad that this is the first time all winter that the roads have been that bad. What's sad is they said the plows had been out all night & you couldn't even tell! You've gotta love Utah in the winter!

Sheesh, yeah. I went through Sardine at 5:30 this morning and thought I was going to die.
