I heard that this afternoon the weather was almost pleasant today but by the time that I got off work and headed to town it was the furthest from being nice outside. And if I didn’t need some things to put in William’s birthday box that’s getting shipped tomorrow, it really would have been a good night to just hang out in front of the fireplace. Once I got to town I noticed that you couldn’t even tell that it was windy out in the country. I can see why town people just can’t understand why everyone says that the roads are so bad when they are walking around and there’s hardly a breeze. So I quick did a couple of errands and then I was headed back home. I saw a couple of cars in the ditch and met an ambulance and some police cars and thought.. Yup, time to get home. But I was really worried about our gravel road. It’s like most of everyone’s gravel roads that we know around the area and it can get filled in with snow pretty fast. But as I was driving on it I thought that it wasn’t that bad and since I didn’t have to go out anymore, no big deal. As I just took off my coat the phone rang and it was our tax person. It ended up that I forgot to sign one of the spots that needed to be signed on our tax papers. Well back went my boots and coat and out I went. By this time the corner where I turn was getting pretty filled in with snow and when you got your front tires to turn the corner you gave the car gas and spun around to head north. Hum, I’m thinking this corner is going to be not much fun in the morning. It was too late to turn back so I kept going. It wasn’t long and I really didn’t know where I was on the road because of all the snow blowing. See the snow banks in the ditches are about as high as the car and when it’s windy out the snow just fills up the whole area that you’re trying to drive in. So what do you do in a situation like this? Well you hit the gas again. You know that there’s a lot of snow under the car and the last thing that you want to do is to get stuck. Whew! Finally made it to town and ran in to her business to sign the papers. I left the car running and I was out in a matter of minutes. Now to see how the roads were going home. I wasn’t expecting it to be good, but it wasn’t so bad heading south. I don’t know if the wind died down for the short time or what, but who cares I made it home.
