Excitement on the Road

We’ve had our share of excitement this morning, and it’s not ended yet. We started out this morning around 7:30 a.m., and it was raining. Rain turned to snow and slushy roads. It was very intense driving for Dad as we battled wind, snow, slush, and ice.

We are now waiting, as a semi-truck jackknifed and another truck is in the ditch. We had to exit, so we are waiting for the trucks to clear to be able to continue. We are only about 150 miles from Rapid City, so we’ll still be arriving by mid-afternoon. We will then set up and prepare for this weekend. It appears no one was hurt, and there was no pileup–an incredible praise the Lord!

Sarah for the rest

We had to exit.
The two trucks

The two trucks are at the front, and other trucks and cars are waiting.

“He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler” (Psalms 91:4).

  1. When my brother got married in 1983, my mom, stepdad and I drove from Los Angeles to Rapid City. On May 18th we hit one of the hardest spring blizzards in the area at that time and ended up spending the night in a little town in Wyoming off the interstate. You just can’t plan on weather until July when you know it’s going to be hot.

    Glad you got to see Wall Drug. It’s a fun place to explore. Any jackalopes make the ride home for the baby? (I have mine 27 years later).
    No Jackalopes. smile.
