I knew it was going to be a long day when the school I do practicum in the morning canceled class because of the ice and it is the school that never closes for most any weather. So I left out of town early knowing I had a long drive, what I did not expect was the amount of challenge ahead. First, I knew I was sliding when I looked out my side mirror and could see the back end of my vehicle. I then crept my way towards collage which took me over an hour to make it there when it usually only takes me about 50 minutes. I also found that the storm was thick in places and not bad in others. When I first started it was terrible and when I reached the small town in the middle of my drive the fog was so thick I could barely drive and see where I going. Then there was a small clear patch before climbing the large hill towards Ladd Canyon which is famous for being a bad drive. This section of driving was not too bad except for the beginning of the pass which was another thick patch of fog. Once I reached towards my college, the storm was hardly noticeable as it was in the town I started in. Just before I exited I saw on the other side of the highway many different type, kinds, sizes, years, makes, and models of semi trucks. I was immediately struck by how much we rely on semi trucks for supplies and how much they go through to get these supplies to us. I finally made it to class glad to have made it safely and to be off the slippery road for a while before attempting to make it back home.
