This year has been a record winter for the majority of the USA.

So far here in Missouri, we have gotten just under 12 inches in 48 hours.

Road accidents are the major news report right now.

Just today in my town we lost two young people, under 20 from ice/snow accident driving problems.

Last night it took him 45 minutes to travel 15 miles home from work. He came in with his legs shaking from the drive and it was not because it was cold.

He told me that he saw 5 cars off the road and down into deep ditches that had been left there. It will be a week I am sure before a tow truck can get them out of the farmers fields and out of ditches.

I hope all of you here stay safe. If at all possible, Call a Snow day and stay home.

If you just cant, give yourself lots of time and go slow.

It is always better to be late than not make it at all. No job is worth the loss of life or a accident that can leave you with a life disorder.
