Icy Road Trip

Good Morning from New Braunfels, Texas!!   Sam and I left on a business trip yesterday morning.....We drove about 10 miles and had to turn around and come back home!   The roads were packed with ice!!


This looks like snow.....but it is solid ice.  Can you imagine four hours later with sleet heavily falling?

It took us an hour to drive that 10 miles and to return home.

After lunch.....we tried it again....    The roads were still bad, but we made it out!!

Drove to New Braunfels last night and wouldn't you know......the forecast was calling for icy conditions down here.

We still have about 175 miles to go to reach our destination, so hopefully we will be out of the ice soon.   It's the trip back home tonight that worries me!!!!!!  

Our schools at home are CLOSED again today and the road conditions are still treacherous.

Prayers for our safety please!!

Hope you all are warm.....have a Blessed Tuesday!

Oh My gosh... that would scare me to death... So glad you made it---and I hope you made it back home safely. There's nothing worse than ICE.

Prayers and HUGS,

Shug, there is no way I could attempt a trip in icy conditions. I'd have a major panic attack. Praying for y'alls safety.

Goodness you are both brave to go out in that mess. I would have opted to stay in and be cozy.

Praying traveling mercies for you!

I'd never attempt to drive on icy roads especially at night! Hopefully you decided to stay in a nice hotel for the night. Let us know you made it home safe and sound, okay?
