HELP! I’m snowed in at a motel in Winchester, VA, and there is NO WAFFLE HOUSE close by. There is one about two miles away, but walking in sneakers in almost knee deep snow isn’t gonna happen.
Luckily I got all the dogs delivered before the shit hit. I was 40 miles inside PA when it started.
This was made while driving down the road about 15 minutes after it started.
I still had a 100 miles to drive before I could stop at my favorite motel. In that two hours, I-81 was down to one good lane and the cloverleaf exit I used was so icy it was like I was ‘dirt-tracking’ again. Almost sideways all the up the ramp.
This is at the motel looking toward the Texas Road House resturant where I ate dinner last night.
Now the snow is up to my knees. You can see some pictures below. Many of you live in shit like this all winter. My advice…move South - below NC and TN.
This is the motel later that evening and today.
This is outside my motel window. There is a hill leading up to a barbedwire fence.
I’ll try to get back home tomorrow. The cargo van is almost too light to get good traction, so I will have to think about leaving. Hunger may be the deciding factor. Nothing is open around here.
This morning, while having coffee and doughnuts in the lobby, I got to talking to an ex-Navy Tin Can sailor from Texas who served at the same time as me. He has a 4 wheel drive F250 truck and offered to take me with him and his wife when they go out for dinner tonight. He is my new best friend.
But let me tell you peeps something, being stuck in a motel alone with no place to go sucks big time. And cold…it’s so cold here that the flashers are showing pictures of themselves.
