Maria in the snow, Feb, 2008
Maria needs to get 50 hours in driving since she has her learner's permit and she has about 20 to go. Since the weather has been so horrible, we haven't been too aggressive about getting them done. The plan yesterday was for her to drive the 4 hour trip to the wedding. Winter. Michigan. Need I say more? The snow keeps coming and coming and coming this winter. We saw many cars in the ditch on the way and furthermore, she got to experience having a car slide across the median into the cars in front of her forcing her to the side of the road to avoid an accident. Later, a snow plow in front of her going about 60mph left a wide trail of airborn snow causing severe white out conditions for her. She remained calm, but after 3 hours and stopping for lunch, she decided John could drive. When we got to Ohio, the roads were fine, but our usual 4 hour journey took us 6 today! We arrived in one piece to the wedding and all was well. Pix tomorrow!
