Many teachers were coming back to the school because the traffic and roads were so bad that their roads were closed. Everything was bumper to bumper for miles. All of my students ended up going home and when I left the school, I wasn't sure what to see. What happened to me? An absolute miracle.
I said a quick prayer before I got in my car and saw the road I needed to get on was completely empty - even though the other side of the road was packed for miles. At first it scared me because I was worried the road was closed. When I went down that road, I saw the next road was also completely empty even though the other side of the road was packed for miles. A lady at an intersection began yelling at me that the road was closed.
I decided to pull into a parking lot and watched as this lady told many people that the road was closed. I decided to go with my gut and went anyway and...you know what? The road wasn't closed. One side of the road, again, was packed for miles, however, the side I needed was again- completely empty.
I ended up getting home from school in about 30 minutes which is a miracle for my 1.5 trek. It took many people over 4 hours to get the same distance home.
|This is down our street and it is all ice. Over half of our street is all ice.|
I feel very blessed that we were able to sleep in our bed together last night and that our work is canceled for tomorrow.
(Also, we are now making emergency backpacks for our car trunks too now. I will always have a pair of snow boots, tennis shoes, and an extra coat in my trunk now. I felt pretty dumb realizing I didn't have an option to be able to walk home!)
