Okay, it's not funny now.
This storm has turned into something crazy up here... It is like a bad snow scene from the movie day after tomorrow.
A low pressure center is right over where I am now, and we are on the back side of that, strong winds and endless snow. Glad I took the advice to stay
put here where I am, it can only get worse going east, and I need to head in that direction. Getting stuck out on a highway in the middle of nowhere
in this would really suck.
On the other hand, conversations with other stranded travelers and locals has been enlightening and humorous.
The Chinese may beat us in many ways, but no one on the planet does snow better than North Americans! especially some people I have met from just
across the border in Canada, which even a few have said this is about as bad as it gets in these parts, several of those brave souls threw some chains
on their vehicles and took off... were out of sight within only yards at most. Hell I'm not sure I could find the road to follow them now.
Brave or crazy?
The best part about this blizzard will be the end, and I hope that happens soon!
I've got better things to do.
