Snow on the cars before we left
So, I'm driving our friend, Renee back to OKC, where she will catch a ride to Texas, to catch a ride back to Arkadelphia for college. It had snowed a little bitty bit when we left, but by the time we get to I-40, (about 40 miles away) it is coming down pretty good.
All is fine and well, until we come to Henryetta, a town that has a history with me. As soon as we get within 5 miles of Henryetta, the snow has started to stick on the highway. Within 2 miles of Henryetta, the traffic has slowed considerably. 2 miles past Henryetta, it is down to one lane and has come to a complete standstill. Oh no. Not again.
We decided that it would be prudent to turn around and worry about getting Renee to school another day-another time.
We pulled off the highway and found a convenience store. This time, however, I was in my wife's Kia Sportage 4X4; I wasn't going to get stuck again! We mosied into the convenience store to use the facilities and the power had been off for 30 minutes. I helped a man, in a mini-van, who was stuck to get un-stuck. We piled back into the Kia and off we went!
We got home at about 3 pm and the snow was starting to accumulate in Wagoner. Sally and I were supposed to be a part of a missions forum tonight in Coweta, but they called while I was typing this to say that it is cancelled. That is a blessing, of sorts, for us.
So, by the time we got back home to Wagoner, the kids had already been out playing and had built a miniature snowman. Not bad for March 28!
