First day of winter and it's still dumping snow here. Luckily there's no wind and it's about 27 degrees F. So it's tolerable. And unbelievably gorgeous.
I just had to be pulled out of the "ditch" along 520 ... and I drive a 4-wheel drive Jeep!
But I could have had 18-wheel drive and nothing would have helped when I hit a huge patch of ice covered with snow. I just slowly swished across three lanes and into the ditch. They had just plowed and there was enough of a hill on either side of me that I couldn't get out of the little gully. A very sweet young man and his girlfriend stopped and helped me. I think I surprised him when I gave him a big hug after I was out. But he just laughed and wished me a Merry Christmas.
Kind people do exist!!!
