We had our first good snow this week. Thursday night when I went to bed it was pouring down rain but when I awoke Friday morning and all was oh-so-quiet, I thought, yup.....snow came while I was snuggled in bed asleep. Sure enough, we had a little over 5" of the white stuff.
I think I need to design a decorative snow measuring device of some kind to actually give me a now much snow has fallen idea? The kids only had about an inch at most and Willow which is about 20 miles to the north of us had barely a skiff!
Dale was up towards Glenn Allen and sent me a text to say it was snowing and the wind was blowing about 30mph which was making for some serious road conditions. He avoided being involved in a crash but only barely.
I am very grateful the van that tried to get stopped behind him was able to slide around and the guy walking on the road was too as it nearly ran over him but slid on the other direction only to come to a stop smashed up against the guys pickup which was parked in the MIDDLE Of the road!!! (Seems the guy had stopped to help somebody that had slid off the road but instead of pulling up 50 yards to get out of the road, simply parked it in the driving lane. (Not real bright there buddy?)
Dale said the snow was blowing so badly you could hardly see and he knew there were 2 cars ahead of him and when he could see their brake lights both light up he knew something was going down so he took preventive measures. I am VERY grateful we didn't have another car bite the dust in an accident as I am REALLY tired of all the rigs we have lost in the past few years. Especially since none of the accidents were our fault!
Well, we have found a flaw in Dog. Seems if left to his own devices in the truck, he will eat the peanut m/m's found. In his defense, it was one of the mini snack size and he only ate 1 of the 2 back there so not like he made a glutton of himself by any means.
I sure wish we knew a little more of his former life, he LOVES to go for rides and if you open the door to a rig he is in quick as a wink and it takes MUCH persuasion to remove him, even with a leash on and when we go for our walks he looks longingly at the rig as we go by. I wonder if he lived in a rig and that is his security?
