White Out or Wipe Out?

Good Morning!

When I was planning the week I was going to head to Detroit today....but I woke up to another snow storm.....and can I say that.....I am soooo over Winter. So like a ship in a storm, I decided to head straight into the weather....that means I am headed to Grand Rapids instead. You have to understand that the decision is based a little more on how people drive in Metro Detroit, than the actual weather....no offense but it's a little more aggressive than most places and I am not quite ready to cash in my life insurance policy yet.

But, just as I was patting myself on the back for my brilliant choice....I had to slam on the brakes, to get by a truck pile up....the police were just pulling back apart. I-96 can be that way with blowing snow and such....and this isn't the first time that I have come across this between Lansing and GR. Thank goodness for ABS, by the time I collected myself again...I was coming up on the exit to HWY 66...takes you to Ionia.....home of the Ionia Free Fair http://www.ioniafreefair.com/ one of the coolest Fairs I have ever been to. Ionia is great because it is almost dead center the distance between Grand Rapids and Lansing, and so a lot of family's live here...and the husband works in one direction, and the wife in the other.

Bob, I heard this accident on 96 was caused by a driver attempting to take pictures while driving - both hands on the wheel Bob!
