winter's icy grip

Good morning.
It appears the bitter cold is lessening it's grip as temps the next couple of days reach into the mid 20's.   :-\
Here's a couple of pics of the massive 193 car/truck pile-up that happened last Friday morning on Interstate 94.
193! There were white out conditions and black ice. Amazingly only one person was killed.
They brought in large portable lights as they worked through the night trying to clean up and reopen the highway. Both lanes were finally opened this morning. Two days later.
This was one of three weather related pileups across the state that morning, with a 50 car pile up over on the west side of the state on US 31, and a 40 car pile up on the east side on US 23.
People driving to fast for the road conditions.
In other news.....
Work was steady this week. I had to go in early every day to clean floors as we kept getting a little snow each day.
I've also received a letter informing me it's time for a Colonoscopy. Has it been 5 years already?
Since my dad died of colon cancer, I'm suppose to get checked every 5 years. I've had 3 of them so far. Fun times.
That's all I've got for now.

  1. I wish they'd come up with a better way to do them. Heck. I'd rather eat prunes! That stuff they make you drink always makes me want to puke.
    Good luck. I'm sure you'll be fine. stay warm and drive careful. You'd think people in Michigan would know to drive safer. It is definitely lucky only one was killed.
    Enjoy your weekend!
