So that’s how March 18, 2013 is treating me. How’s it going for you?

We were visiting family when we heard about an incoming snow storm. I believed the weathermen (yeah, beyond stupid) who said the storm wouldn’t hit the area until 7:00 p.m. We left with enough time to spare … or so I thought. We got caught in a helluva blizzard. As we inched down the highway, vehicles that had slid off the road dotted the median and shoulder. One car fishtailed right in front of us when he slowed to avoid hitting a tanker truck in front of him, causing us to nearly careen off the road and into the side rail ourselves. Removing one white-knuckled hand off the steering wheel, I shifted my Jeep into 4-Low and kept creeping along, while Little d got on the phone to book a room in the closest hotel 20 miles away. That turned out to be an hour drive, but we managed to make it without further incident. The whole time, my two-year-old charmer watched Little Einsteins on the Kindle Fire, unaware of the anxiety on her old man’s face.
