Kiefer,
This reminds me a time back in early 1970’s when I got caught up in a blizzard back in New England. I was on a highway headed to work during the height of a very bad snow storm. We were all following the ploughs but soon the snow ploughs met their match and everything came to a stop. One plough made a path across the median and one by one we were directed by the state police to turn around and head back the other way. The roads were so covered you could hardly tell were the exits were. I found my exit and was on I-95 when I saw cars coming at me on my side of the road. They stopped me to ask for directions. I told them It’s no use the road is impassable turn around and go home!
When your young situations like this are no big deal but now that I have packed on a few years I’m happy to be free of the flakes!

After I posted this I thought how many people actually know what a blizzard is ?
FYI It’s a snow storm that is similar to a dense fog with high wind speed and not the thing you get at DAIRY Queen .

Kiefer,
This was our house in Franklin MA back in 1988 during a storm. We now live in FL.
That’s our oldest son Alan in the driveway. He’s in his 40’s now! Boy do I feel old!

Well kiefer, I for one know what a blizzard is. I grew up in Saskatchewan. I do however have the common sense to avoid them now by moving to AZ. for the “unpleasant” months.

Funny Kiefer, thanks for the laugh! On a more serious note I recently read a chilling fictitious account based on solid facts and other actual occurrences of a guy who was driving in really cold weather and got stuck in a snow drift. his destination was about 5 miles further on and being in good physical condition he decided to ski the rest of the way. After a series of oft repeated mishaps he was almost dead when they found him the next morning. I guess staying in the car is the best idea after all.

Almost every year some of our cross country skiers get caught in blizzards or just get lost and die, many within sight of a cabin after the air clears and the sun is up. Every year many school classes take a winter trip and they learn how to dig a snow shelter where they can overnight to protect themselves from a storm plus map reading and compass use.

I was in north central Iowa and was about to load the car to head back to Illinois when my father in law said forget leaving for at least two days as the highway patrol had closed the highways due to coming the blizzard.

And about two hours later you couldn’t see the house across the street!
