We just came back from Matthew's baptism in Rockford and I'll just say I'm glad to be home safe and sound. The highway was really white out conditions. We came up on some stopped cars and firetrucks, but with low visibility there really wasn't much warning. Our CR-V stopped nicely (God bless that car) but many other cars around us weren't so lucky. A Grand-Am skidded past us at an angle and hit another car. Then we watched a semi slowly jack knife behind us until it came to a halt, thankfully quite a distance from us. We worked our way around the stopped cars and made the rest of the trek home at a nice slow speed. Down the road we noticed that they were shutting down the west bound side. So, home we'll stay for the rest of the day. I hope all of you can plan to stay inside too!
