Edinboro trials?

Seriously, why do I enter trials held in Edinboro in the Winter? Oh, wait, because it's just about the only place trials are held within two hours of here over the winter. Edinboro has got to be the worst place ever, there's a lake effect snow warning for a solid 4 months of the year I think. Normally I just take off this time of the year, but I wanted to do a few trials over the winter with Indy.

So we got up bright and early and started our drive into the winter wonderland. We had a little dusting over night, but nothing to worry about. The drive was going fine until we got just out of the city and the roads were a bit snow covered, most cars were going pretty slow, but there's always a few that just don't seem to get it, it was getting worse and worse and I just had a bad feeling, and was really worried about driving back home at the end of the day, so we decided to just a call it a day and head home. Just not worth it, I'd rather play in the snow with the dogs here and be safe.

Not two minutes later I see a car sliding out of control on the other side of the highway, it flips right over the guard rail and is flipping across the grass between lanes....heading right for us. The guard rail on our side of the highway stopped it before coming into on coming traffic. That will get the heart racing!!

Glad to be home.
