    Nicky and I had to run to the next town over. Well it was snowing and sleeting pretty good while we were there. On the way back we came up over an overpass and there sits a SUV smashed into the cement wall. :doah: Well out of reaction I hit the breaks, bad move. :eek: I had the Suburban sideways three times before we hit dry pavement. :yikes: We stopped to call 911 and I was going to jump out and head back to check on the driver. Then another car hits the overpass and wipes out.:doah: Well the troopers show up so we leave. 2 miles from the house jack knifed truck on the next overpass.:eek1: No way around, so we sat. Hour and 45 minutes 2 miles from the house.:frown1:

    This is totally off the subject, but I took an unplanned vacation in Port Clinton last summer. Was going to Cedar Point and it was packed so said fuggit and went exploring and found ourselves up north. It's an awesome area! Went to Catawba, South Bass, Marblehead, etc. and had a total blast. :thumb:

    Hmmm. Take the snow and sleet out of the story, and you have a typical day in L.A. trying to get to the grocery store down the street.

    Glad you're OK.
