2 Hours to Go 10 Miles on Valentine's Day
What is normally a 15-20-minute ride turned into a two hour crawl this Valentine's Day after an SUV ran into a school bus on US 41 South between Terre Haue and Farmersburg in the Cornfield. According to the latest news report, both drivers were transported to the hospital.
After the mercury rising to above freezing for the first time in weeks on Thursday, the Cornfield was once more covered with another 4 inches of snow this Valentine's Day with temp hovering in the mid 20s. The snow and icy conditions made driving treacherous at times.
Being the special day that it is, Ryan's, where Iohn, my life partner works, was serving up prime rib dinners. Iohn and I decided to take advantage of the rare treat. We finished dining before 4:30 and began our 10-mile trip back to Mark's Den.
As we proceeded south from Terre Haute on US 41 toward Farmersburg. We were nearly to Pimento about 5 miles down the road when the traffic came to a complete halt. Nearly two hours later we finally were coming into Farmersburg and pulling into the parking lot of Dollar General.
We are now safe and sound, back in Mark's Den. No more going out for us tonight.
To see the images I took along the long, slog home you have to view the entire video piecing the images together.
From the Cornfield, Happy Valentine's Day! And for iReporter, NuYwk, Happy Single Awareness Day!
