The Epic Ice Storm

We have been experiencing unseasonable cold weather but nothing like what hit the midwest this last week. Unfortunately Grandma and Grandpa were making a cross country trek to visit us when the epic ice storm hit. They were caught in the middle of Texas on highway 20 trying to complete the last leg of their trip.

Everything was covered in at least four inches of ice.

They spent one night sleeping on the highway surrounded by semis. Fortunately they saw this experience as an adventure and got to know the truckers around them.

They started moving the next morning moving the fastest they had all night, 5mph. Needless to say their arrival was delayed by a day but fortunately they hit better roads by Arizona and arrived safely.
