crazy snow action


Tracy and I took the girls into seattle today and as we started to slow down on I-5, we saw the above horrifying scene dangling over the freeway. It had apparently happened just minutes before we drove by. It was crazy. Seattle is pretty scary in the snow and ice because of all the hills.

  3. nobody was hurt but to put yourself in the drivers seat and think what he must have thought was pretty sobering.

  4. Oh God that looked scary!! Here in Norway I drive around on studded tyres. Some have other types of winter tyres, but still good for snow and ice. But accidents can happen..

  8. gorgeous artwork, Teesha. sobering pictures...my 73 yr. old father was driving cross-Canada to get home when he was forced off the highway by an out of control car ahead of him. he thought the snow would stop him: wrong. he spent two hours confined up to the top of his car door buried and the passenger side totally scraped and torn back by the rock wall he drove into ---no ditches there in northern Ontario.

    his (new)car is totalled and after going on 6 days in a cold hotel in the midst of nowhere he's still waiting on the friggin' insurance appraiser.

    i thank all the gods that he wasn't hurt or worse; i would curl up into a ball and die without him.

    (secretly) i've followed your art for some time. please make a wee image of my safe dad somewhere if only you know where. it can represent the angels who rescue the brave venturing souls who drive OFF a road to avoid a possibly worse collision with all those other crazy drivers in their "so safe" SUVs.

    hugs and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
