Interesting ride home this afternoon
Spring weather-gotta love it!! This morning the weather forecast called for sleet changing to rain for the day and rain ending in the morning. Well folks, they got it wrong again! It started pouring down snow sometime around 2:00, I think (no windows in my office). At 3:45 I thought I had better get home ( I get off at 4:00 each day) and by the time I closed down the computer, cleared off my desk, locked up the files and got my coat on it was 4:00. My drive home usually takes 40-45 minutes depending on traffic. This afternoon it took one hour and 35 minutes and here’s what my drive home looked like, no words or captions needed and a 10 mph -15 mph ride home:
What I found in the parking lot after leaving work.
Most of the vehicles had at least two inches on them.
Half block from my parking lot.
Pouring down snow and can’t keep the windshield clear.
Traffic is at a stand still on Prices Fork Rd one block from the office. Took me 18 minutes to get one block.
Creeping up a side steet to get to Delimart-I have to get gas before I can head home.
NOw, I’m back on Prices Fork heading for my exit to home. I’t’s 4:30.
Newport and headed to Craig County!
Simmonsville turn straight ahead-slow down to five miles an hour and get through the turn!
The big red barn and my driveway are within eyesight now!!
I sure am glad I made it without any mishaps and the snow is still pouring. It sure is great to be home!!!!!!!!!!!
