My oh my, the first responders were busy today! Even on my very early commute, blue and red lights were flashing. Before 5 a.m., it's usually a fairly quiet ride into work for me. Not much to worry about. But today was different, of course.

One of the biggest problems, aside from slick roads, was the lack of visibility. Not because it was snowing hard, but because it was a very powdery coating on the roads and traffic was swirling it like crazy.

Speeds were greatly reduced and even in light traffic early, cars seemed to bunch up as we cruised along. My top speed on Hwy 240 this morning was probably 40 mph, but most of the time it was under that. Naturally, I was passed over and over by cars that I thought I'd see in the ditch up ahead (but never did).
