"Drive careful, sonshine"

Ben headed back to school this morning.

He needed to be out before noon. He has to be at the "Christmas at Luther" rehearsal at 3:00, or he won't be able to perform. They have a six hour rehearsal today.

Hugs, "love you , drive careful, it's slippery", and he was out the door by 11:30.

11:32, we received a phone call.

"Can you come and give me a tow?"

He made it down the hill to the iron bridge. Slid right over the edge.

Luckily, he didn't roll, or end up in the river.

Due to the proximity to the bridge and the slipperiness of the road, Paul wasn't able to extract him with his truck.

A tow truck was called. Rather than wait, Ben took my truck to Iowa.

With the friendly warning, "do anything to my truck and I'll kill you!"

I'm glad he's ok. Better to lose/wreck a vehicle than a person.

We just got our first snow. Ground is still too warm for it to stick around, I can't wait until it covers. It's about time for me to use the 'too cold to do anything else other than knit' excuse...
