If you were following my twitters late in the day on Friday, you know that we made a "some may say foolhardy" trip to Cincinnati during the "Storm of 2008".
My wife drove, as I would have been a nervous wreck trying to negotiate the various road conditions, back and forth from lanes with grooves, to totally covered lanes, to 5-10MPH near-standstills, to "choose your own lane adventure because there are no lanes to be seen".
What is with southern Ohio and their inability to handle winter weather?
But, she negotiated it all well enough to get us down there in 6.5 hours when it is usually a 4 hour trip. We did have to re-route ourselves, as when we got close, and tried to make it up the first steep hill in their area, we barely made it to the first crest with our wheels spinning to get traction, we called my sister-in-law's house and got some more easily negotiable directions.
The main reason we went down was the my sister-in-law's family and my wife's parents paid for Katie to go to the live presentation of High School Musical on stage. She went with Aunt Beth, cousin Ellie and one of Ellie's friends. She had a great time, so it was all worth it.
We did get to spend some time out in the snow on the hills in back of the houses, and when I get a chance I'll post some of the pictures we captured of all the cousins enjoying some sled time.
I drove back all the way on Sunday evening and the roads were totally clear and dry all the way back, what a difference 36-48 hours makes.
Update 3/14 - finally got the pics copied off the camera, see above...
