OK not really just love Tom Petty. LOL

I am getting ready to get on the road for my move. We missed the snow here, just hope we miss it all the way there. \:\)

So I'll on and off the net for a while.

Well here it is almost 11pm.. we started this journey at 8am. It's sopose to be a 12 hour drive. However not for us. First my son's car broke down so we have to unload all 3 cars then repack everything into 2 and leave his on the side of the highway. Then we get caught in a WY snow storm. Ever seen a WY snow storm? OMG!!! OK so we slow down and keep going.. then this semitruck goes by us a break neck speeds kicking up snow on to my windshield to where I can't see ANYTHIGN.. I try to slow down but end up in the ditch.. so me and my boys manage to get my car out of the snow filled ditch IN the snow all the while cars a zooming past not stoping to make sure everyone is ok. Then it really starts to snow so we have to pull over and get a room. Still have like 2 hours to go. I'm a nervous wreck. Haveing an axinty attct BAD!!!! So get into the room.. and I get a hot shower.. and that helped some.. my whole body is shakeing so bad and now I'm sitting here in the dark trying to calm down enough to get some sleep before we "try" the roads again in the morning.. maybe they will have the plows on the south bound lanes.. I can't tell you the number of north bound plows we saw tonight.

Ok going for now.

Thanks
James

James,

I remember how crazy snowstorms could be in PA, and in Wyoming it's GOT to be much worse. If I were you I would just sit tight until you know the roads are safe.

Much love,
Larry

OK well we made it. The roads weren't "too" bad the rest of the way. A few places where the ice was built up but all and all it was ok. Slowest we had to drive was 40. But all is safe, now we just need to find a way to go get my son's car that we left on the side of the road. Oh well at least we are here, cars are replaceable if need be.

Thanks for the support
James
