Michigan Trip

We took a trip to Michigan with our family and had lots of fun. We missed the pups terribly, but they had a wonderful sitter while we were gone. We traveled to Michigan to go snowmobiling. We went around 300 miles total and had no major breakdowns or issues.

We got a call late the night before we left (Monday) from my cousin and he said that there was bad weather heading to Ohio. The news was saying that it was a possible blizzard. The were calling for 10-16 inches of snow and 30 mph winds. So Tuesday morning we heading out at 6 a.m. for a 8 hr drive home. We got about 1 1/2 from home and the roads starting getting really bad. We about lost it a few times, so Jason slowed down to about 45 mph on the main highway. We were traveling at that speed for no more than 15 min and everyone ahead of us starting hitting there brakes. Then we were at a dead stop.
We waited in traffic for 2 hours and found out when we got to the scene of the accident it consisted of a jack knifed cemi that came from the northbound lane to the southbound lane and a car that broke the guardrail and went over the bridge. So the northbound and southbound traffic was at a deadstop. I really hope everyone made it out of the accident ok.
