What damned fool dispatcher sends 18 wheelers out in the teeth of a major ice storm and blizzard?
Compounded by a damned fool driver that attempts the trip, one could say.
My sister, the insurance adjuster, is on her way to a huge pileup on I-25 just South of the Wyoming line. To get there she will be using back roads that won't see a snowplow for days. The main roads are closed.
With her 4wd F-150 and decades of dealing with the worse kind of weather she will get the job done.
When I last talked to her on the cell she said it was, "Almost two hands on the wheel", conditions.
Can't fault her - I would be doing the same.
In addition to the above mentioned damned fools I should include my sister and I. We have done similar things time and time again over the years.
UPDATE: The county has sidelined snowplows due to whiteout conditions.
