Today we drove with our three little children for almost twelve hours on snowy winters roads. The last stretch of highway was treacherous. The snow was falling quickly, it was dark, the road was coated in icy hard packed snow and every time a big semi-truck drove by it was a complete white out. If you’ve never driven in these kind of conditions be glad. It is not a pleasant thing to experience. A few times I had to talk myself out of jumping out of the car into the snow bank.
I didn’t take any pictures of our journey. I was too busy clutching my knitting needles trying to focus on something, anything other than the road. Granted, I am exaggerating a bit. My husband would say that 80% of the drive was good, 10% was a “little sketchy” and 10% was “definitely not good”. He is an optimist, I like to think of myself as a realist… he thinks I am a pessimist. We are a good match.
Thankfully we arrived at our destination safely. Seeing our family again is such a blessing and we are looking forward to spending Christmas with them. If you are travelling this Christmas I pray that your travels are safe and that you don’t encounter any scary driving conditions.
