After moving my family to Ohio this past weekend, I must return to work. I made the drive back to Washington D.C. despite Mother Nature’s best efforts to stop me.
Off the bat there was an accident in both the westbound and eastbound lanes of I-70 in Ohio. I counted seven tractor trailers piled up in the westbound lanes, I could make out the remains of several cars in between them. While I was stuck at this accident, for two hours, it snowed about three inches. This made for an interesting start for the tractor trailers that had been in this mess with me.
Finally I got moving. I made it about another hundred miles before a minivan decided to cross four lanes of traffic and run me off of the road. Luckily there was no snow on the shoulder.
Another hundred miles later, and after dark, I drove through a white out. For those of you from warmer climates, this is where there is so much snow blowing around that all you can see is white. This lasted for about twenty miles.
Once I overcame these obstacles, the rest was pretty much smooth sailing.
