It took out another pickup also. I jumped in my pickup and hauled down the county road to the wreck. My son is on the phone with 911, white as a ghost. He dove in the ditch as the truck went right by him. No one is hurt bad, cuts and bruises. The highway is closed for a couple hours, now highway 13 north outta Craig is not very busy at 9 ish at night and the State is detouring the few cars up the county road. A semi also gets sent up the hill. He makes it half way and gets stuck in my drive. I go get the Kubota and pull his butt to the top of the hill. Long night and it is only the first storm of the year! I frickin' HATE WINTER!
That's pretty scary. Glad no one was hurt.

Man, glad he was OK. That is just about as scary as what happened to your daughter. You got some good luck coming for awhile now, I hope.

Hey Norm,

Glad your son is OK. I'm hoping to ride through your neck of the woods again sometime next year.

Whoa. It looks as if the trees are steaming when it first starts. I guess that's what our neighborhood would look like. Sure hope we get more snow.
