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.
