Winter’s wrath


There were hundreds of accidents and spinouts around the Twin Cities on Sunday. I caught this one on the southbound side of I-694 in Oakdale. Thankfully, all four inside made it out OK. On the way back later in the evening, I passed another accident in the same spot, and dozens of others between Woodbury and Maplewood.

Downstream on News Cut, there are some discussions on first responders. On days like Sunday, and many others, you can’t thank them enough. I presume they’d be happy if we just drove a little slower.

  • Saturday, Sunday and today, I drove slowly and carefully. And even so, I fishtailed slightly on a number of occasions.

    People passed me, sometimes angrily. However, I’d rather drive slowly and reduce my chances of an accident than to roll the dice.
