Oh my Hollie,

That is a sad scene, hope there weren't any deaths, we are so foggy this morning here, and this is a contributing factor of many interstate accidents...anymore I dread hearing the sounds of the sirens going off. Hoping for the best.

maybe grey's better at nite. few years ago we drove home from fargo in a blizzard - it was 90 miles and you'll always get speeders rollin up behind but i didn't fret - we had a tan honda with huge tail lights. so it was dark, we took our time, stayed between ditches & finally pulled under the yardlite maybe midnite. i went to get groceries and here was maybe 8" of snow stuck on the hatchback. you'd have needed a shovel to see tail lites!
