This was the trip home

Oh yeah, great Canadian weather greeted us on our way home from K.C. The second picture was in South Dakota. The first was taken in Manitoba and that semi was pretty much right on top of us before we could clearly see it. Believe it or not, Nat, it wasn't even snowing; this was just from the blowing snow from the fields to the side of the highway.

This was the great accident we narrowly missed in Winnipeg. The car you see in the middle was the initial cause of the crash as she lost control on the bridge and darn near found herself free falling over the side. For a route that was supposed to be 2 hours quicker, we took a pretty long time getting home. I think the long way was quicker than the shortcut this time.

At least we made it home without having any damage from this. I felt pretty darn safe once the semi pulled up behind us, knowing that it was going to take a lot to move him so I was pretty secure in the van. BigB was out in the midst of traffic.
