I can honestly tell you all that I hate the snow. I really thought I was going to die last night as I was driving home from work. I was on the highway heading from Springville into Mapleton. As I got up the hill I thought to myself, "The hard parts are over. I'll make it home now." How wrong I was. Right then the wind started blowing like crazy and my car was swaying. The car in front of me turned off, so I was now leading the line of cars. I was sure I was going to be at fault for leading all of us off a cliff (although there are no cliffs in Mapleton, I was sure I would find one.) I couldn't even see a foot in front of me. I was shaking so bad, all I could do was cry. I could only see the turn to Maple St because I saw the light of a very snow covered gas station. As I turned onto Maple, a very large truck came up behind me and tailed me the whole way home. I was so frusterated because I couldn't see anything and with the trucks lights behind me it minimized my sight even more. I won't lie, I almost hit a few garbage cans because I couldn't see how close I was to the curb. I have decided that Mapleton should get those bumber things like they have in California. It would help for those days that you cannot see. Just a thought. I also was having thoughts of vengence on the Mayor of Mapleton for not clearing the roads. I was not a very happy person. Just so everyone knows, if there is a report of someone egging the Mayors house, just know it was me. Or even better, hooking the hose up to there house and spraying it so everything freezes. Just a few I came up with yesterday on my very stressful drive home.
