We're home safe and sound



We're home after a harrowing drive from Decorah, Iowa. To say it was snowing heavily puts it mildly. We had no business being on the road. During the stretch of Hwy 52 in Rochester MN, there were several accidents. I don't mean just cars in the ditch, I mean pile-ups involving several cars and emergency vehicles. Two such multi-car incidents involved an ambulance. The highway was like a skating rink. Several cars were crashed into guard rails with the drivers in them, talking on the phone. Probably being told by the 911 operators that they'd get right to them ASAP.

Glad you all made it back safely. I heard on MPR that travel on 52 was a beast today.

I hadn't heard how bad it was- happy you made it safely.

"get right to them ASAP", good thing they made that clear! The "current weather at that time" was pretty snowy! :) Just razzin' ya! So glad you made it home safely. I'm finally up and around, feeling somewhat normal again, although that's a concern in itself! Thanks for coming down this weekend, and again, sorry I was so sick and couldn't enjoy your visit! Sheets are laundered, toothbrushes all changed out, doorknobs have all been sanitized, and the straight jacket is back in the closet. Love you all!!!!

Okay, that's it. No more leaving your house without checking with me first.
