We had a few inches of snow the other day (it warmed up this morning and now it is all gone) and driving around in the slick stuff got me to thinking. We usually do some measure of traveling over the holidays, and it is always an understandable concern from our families whether or not we will make it because of the weather. We have lived far enough away and been homesick enough to make trips in all kinds of weather, taking care, and praying along the way. Here are some actual quotes my B and I have remembered from our holiday travels:
"What happened to those snow measuring stick things?"
"Is this a pasture, or are we still on the road?"
"Is it snowing up?"
"Honey, that cop is saying slow down."
"Honey, we're going 5."
"I think we just went over a bridge."
"What is that?"
"It's a jack-knifed semi."
"Well, should we stop?"
"Honey, we can't stop."
"Because we're going downhill, and it's all I can do to try and make the turn. If we stop, it means we've hit the semi."
"Is that a moose?"
"That's a moose."
"He's faster than we are."
"I still see snowflakes coming at me."
"Hon, we've been at your mom's for two hours, now."
Be careful out there! Buckle up! And smile!
