Saturday morning I woke up to this.......
SNOW!!! The worst part wasn't the snow but the ice that had accumulated on the roadway over night. Very slippery.
I wasn't looking forward to the three hour drive to pick up my Mom in Canada but it had to be done.
After I gassed up the car, cleaned off the windows and bought myself a cup of coffee, I turned the radio to my favorite channel.... National Public Radio and off I went.
You can see the layer of ice on the roads in this picture...travel was slow for about an hour. Then the roads began to get better as up north they didn't receive as much precipitation as we did at home.
After driving for three hours, I reached the Canadian border. Here I am passing from the United States into Canada! I have crossed this bridge about a million times in my lifetime....nothing special for me. =)
My Mom was already packed and waiting for me when I reached her house. We loaded up the car up and headed back right away. We chatted all the way to try and catch up on the gossip. Dinner was ready in the crock pot when we walked in the door and were ready to hit the bed after our tummies were full of roasted chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy and veggies.
