I went out unaware of what the weather would be like today, it was terrible, could not see for the blowing snow. Got like three miles from my destination and there was a fatal accident. I kept thinking the whole time, if I had watched the weather I would not have went out today, so I will keep an eye on it from now on, I urge you all to do the same. I know there are people out there that will say, it is february, what did you expect, well I did not expect what I ran into today. Becareful everybody.

Fortunately, in Beirut, Lebanon...we have no snow. WE just have to worry about heavy rain and those pesky Iranians and Syrians that try to ruin things for us.

Ohio Health Insurance, When I read your name I thought you would have been from Ohio, lol. Never would have thought Beirut, Lebanon.

RE: getting out in bad weather you're right some of us have to, but others do not, I agree with OP it's always a good idea to check on this before heading out and if you do not have to get on the roads DON'T...I wish they'd pass some kind of law in my city, if the dag gum schools are closed due to bad roads, if they catch a high school kid out driving...TICKET!

That is a really good thought Lori, Some kids think it is a free pass to cruise around all day long and BE a HAZARD. I am sure there would be many complaints if they did start ticketing them though it is a great idea.

Well...actually....it's just a little joke that I have carried over from other Forums. I am located in Ohio and although I have been to Beirut may years ago...I would NEVER go there now. Hezbollah hates all Westerners and unfortunately is ruining the country.



But every now and then, I'll infer that I'm located in Beirut. Just a joke. I'm right here in Ohio...waiting for the snow to hit later tonight.

I think they work more than one day a week, just routed to you once a week, lol. I don't envy them in this windchill, a lot of them are on the back of the truck going from stop to stop, boooooooooooooooo, they must freeze their butts off.

I am quite the weather bug. Seems I grew up with it in my blood. I can remember not dare talking when the weather was on..no matter what time of year it was...there was always something thunderstorms, frosts, snow and my parents had to know EXACTLY what the weather week held. I think it makes us all think when we seen a fatal accident but infortunately most forget just days later. No matter what the weather conditions or time of year we all need to be safe drivers.

Hey, fireyone good to see you here, haven't seen you in a while on here. The weather has been terrible the last few days for driving, I am glad to have a four day weekend coming up, we have presidents day off and then I have tommorro off. Then next week I have to do some extensive traveling for work, I am not looking forward to it at all, hopefully we will have some descent weather or I may be inclined not to go, it is like a 4 hour trip for me to get to where I need to be. They could have done it in April instead of february. We shall see, I will hope for good weather.

I watch the news in the winter time, I try to keep an eye on the weather for travel reasons. Having a trip ahead of me like that would drive me crazy, goodnatured, would not want to be you, I would be worried until the trip was over. anxiety would be kicking in, right about now Rolling EyesRolling Eyes

Hey good natured. just got the bugs worked out of my computer. Seems I had alot of adware from different sites. Got it all cleared for now. The roads around here (I live in cow country) leave a lot to be wished for, like summertime. I don't travel on them if there is even a trace of snow, an anxiety thing, ya know. I usually just get my chauffer (sp?) to take me. Yes I am talking about my husband. Good luck on your trip and enjoy your 4 day vaca. talk to ya soon.

Fortunately, I am only seven minutes from work. And new tires make quite a difference if you are driving in horrible conditions.



Speaking of horrible conditions, one wonders what it would be like working for Western Southern.



OK...I'll play nice. Old established company for old established agents that want to go out of the business quietly...without any fanfare.
