Me my fiance and my son went to Lincoln Nebraska last weekend to get out wedding bands picked out for our up comming wedding. Woke up sunday morning and I seen it snowing. It snows all the time in nebraska but I just had a bad feeling it was going to be a long day. We were suppost to meet my mom and her husband for lunch at 11:00 am but I called her and told her the weather was getting bad, will have to meet another time. She lives an hour away and she said the weather was good there.(usually weather dosnt bother me but I felt the urge to get home) Got on Interstate I-80 for the trip home. It was snowing relativly hard with a little wind, Visibility - 1Mile. Speed limit is 75, was going around 50 because I know how other idiots drive out there and the weather was bad. Drove for around 45 Min, Wind picked up to around 30 MPH and visibilty was around 20-40 ft. Slowed speed to around 20 - 30 MPH. Was almost rear ended buy sombody in an SUV that must have been going around 50 MPH. He swerved in the other lane and we started going into the median. Cursing begins for the day. Some people started to use their heads. We started to travle in packs with our hazzards on going around 30 MPH. Traffic came to a halt on the interstate. While we were sitting there we herd a huge "bang". A semi truck had rear ended another semi truck that in turn had hit a SUV directly behind us. I slammed the car into drive to avoid getting hit and pulled off onto the side of the road. (started to get pretty nervous) I got out after traffic settled down to see how far the traffic was backed up, walked around 100 yards and there was still traffic as far as the eye could see. Wind gusts pick up to 45 MPH and visibilty is as little as 10 Ft. Drifts started to build up on the interstate. We had sat there for around 2 hours waiting. Coolant temp fell to around 100 from just sitting around in windchills around -15. I finally decided to take a chance of getting stuck in the snow and crossed the median into the opposite lane heading back east. We then seen that traffic was backed up behind us for a good 3 miles. Who knows how many more wrecks there were behind us. I had lived around this area for around 4 years so I had some knowledge of the back roads. We got to the exit I wanted and got food and drinks. Preceded to head north bound to cut back west. Drove for only 4 miles to see the highway was blocked from a minivan rear ending a semi truck. Headed back south to cut back west. Followed a fleet of vehicles for around 2 hours. Visibilty and wid was still the same. (still idiots passing us going 40 MPH. Seen lots of cars stranded on the sides of the roads. I got my family out of the snow storm after a grueling 6 hours on the road. I started to get the stomache flu at this point. I made my fiance drive the rest of the way as I was to sick to drive. Another 2 hours to home. WHAT A DAY!! I read on the news that there were more then 50 collisions and around 8 deaths. There was multi car/ semi truck pile-ups. The one ahead of us was around a 15 vehicle pile-up. If I had known the weather was going to get worse, we would have stayed another night. I know the good lord was looking out for my family yesterday. Never been so happy to be home. Sorry for the long write up. Thanks to those who read it.
