I know I have some angels watching over Jenna and I after the drive home today. My school is on the bench of the mountain. All week the temp has been lower than 40 degrees. Today's high was 33. It started snowing at 2:30 and I left work at 3:40. The roads were already iced over w/temps below freezing. At the base of the hill going onto a 4 lane highway by my school there's a stop sign. My car slid right through it. I am so lucky there were no other cars.
Got on the freeway for my 25 mile drive home. You could see the ice on the roads and in parts only 2 of the 4 lanes were drivable. At 1 point, I was going less than 10mph when my car started sliding towards the end of a semi in the next lane. It stopped short, just barely.
Even in good weather, I have panic attacks if I get stuck between 2 semis ever since my bff was killed by a semi when the car she was in hydroplaned.
So, here I am. In the car with Jenna in the backseat in a whiteout on a frozen freeway trying not to cry. I'm shaking and my arm muscles are twitching. I had taken off my sling to drive home because I knew I'd need 2 hands, so that was good. I stopped at the medical clinic about 10 miles from my house and went in to the bathroom to try to stop shaking and texted my mom. Thank goodness I did. She was stuck with a van w/no working wipers at my nephew's daycare just down the street from the clinic. I got myself together, bought some really good chocolate at the pharmacy and got Jenna a pack of Mamba's and went and got my mom and nephew.
We're home now. Over 2 hrs after I started on my 25 mile drive home. We have over 6" of snow on my driveway and are expected to get lake effect snow after the first round goes by.
I know there was at least 1 angel that stopped my car several times and I'm praying they are helping Jason get home now.

Thank you all. I'm trying to keep busy until DH gets home so I don't keep stressing about him, but it's hard.

I'm glad you made it home safely.

I remember being with my dh in his GT Mustang on an icy road while we were still dating. I think we were both white with fear. A drive that would normally take us 15 minutes took us over an hour. We were going 5mph during most of it.

Oh thank goodness. And thank you for telling us he's safe. And thank you to God for watching over you all.

I hope you don't try to go in tomorrow. Stay safe, OK?

They called it a snow day (which is unprecedented in my district). DH is going in to work late so he doesn't have to be in the traffic.
Of course, I can't go back to sleep. Go figure

Glad your family made it home safe! What a scary drive!

We are having a snow day today too - well Ben and I are. Dh went into work. He shoveled for an hour this morning before being able to get his truck out of the garage. He didn't even get to my side of the driveway. There is a 4 foot snowdrift behind my side! Luckily we have no where to go today!

So glad you all made it home safely! I would have freaked out in those circumstances!!!

And I totally believe in angels! DH works in the oilfield, and I KNOW he has an angel watching over him!!!!
