And then there was snow!

Rush hour on January 26th 2011 was a evening many of us will remember for a long time to come. The National Weather Service called for 4-8” of snow to fall during rush hour and this time they were spot on.

The snow wreaked havoc on so many people trying to make it home ahead of the storm. People were stranded for over ten hours and others gave up and slept in their cars.

I played chicken with the storm and this time I won! Had I left a few minutes later from the office I would have been sleeping on the side of the road too, sphew!  Next time I won’t cut it so close because eventually my luck will run out!

I hope everyone who was stuck for hours has now made it home safe and sound. Now it’s time to go outside and make a snowman with my kids and enjoy the weather!
