Almost snowbound

I had a meeting in Tillsonburg this morning.

I drove down yesterday and stayed about 25 minutes away because I didn't want to take a chance on the weather.

When I woke up this morning, I looked out the window and it was clear.

When I came back from breakfast about 9:15am and looked out the window, here's what I saw:

Oh oh!

And it never let up ... in fact, it got worse.

Driving south to Tillsonburg was scary. I was following Dave, my co-worker (he also spent the night), and at times I couldn't even see his car.

We had our meeting and then went to lunch. Visibility was non-existent and the roads were full of snow and slippery. There was no way I was driving back to Toronto so I headed to the local Howard Johnson's to stay there for the night while Dave hit the road for home. I was in the lobby asking about rates when Dave called me to say the roads weren't too bad.

So off I went.

Just south of Kitchener/Waterloo, there was a big truck on its side on the westbound lanes along with a couple vans that had run into the middle barriers.

It was a scary drive at times but I made it home. Yay!

It must have been terrifying to drive home! I saw awful pics on the news last night. Yikes! Stay safe and warm!
