However naturally, as the way things go, the 'not seeing any snow' part of my break changed quite dramatically on my way down to school. Shortly after entering the PA Turnpike, I saw snowflakes in my headlamps. It seemed like this was just going to be flurries and that was it.
I couldn't have been more wrong. Within 15 minutes there was snow everywhere, big giant snowflakes and it looked like I was driving through a time warp of snow as it seemed to hurtle into my face. Now it didn't seem to be sticking to the road, but I had to slow it down just in case. I tested the roads by swerving now and then, making sure the surfaces were not becoming to slick. It has been a long time since I've driven in snow and wanted just be safe.
Life has a funny way of throwing things at you that you want, but not at the times that you want them. I wanted to have it snow, but not when I had a 14 hour drive ahead of me through six states. But sometimes, you have to just make do, be thankful for it all, and keep trucking.
