Icy Road Trouble North Of Baltimore

Unanticipated icy conditions on even major roads have extended rush hour backups and delays north and northeast of Baltimore Friday evening.

That’s the understatement of the year.  I left work in Hunt Valley at 5:45p.  I pulled into my drive (a little ways  over the PA line) at just before 8p. My commute normally takes about 20-25 minutes.

I spent a lot of the drive home in 4×4 with two wheels over on the (grass) shoulder of the road.  I still slid all over the place.  You could have four wheel drive or 8 wheel drive….  doesn’t matter.  Ice is ice.  Lots of people sliding off the road or stuck at the bottom of hills.

I actually tried to help someone at first…  but she freaked out and started screaming at me when i approached her car.  Learning once again the lesson that no good deed goes unpunished, I returned to my Jeep and concentrated on getting my now selfish ass home.

I saw my first (and last) SHA salt truck at 7:20p on Old York Road.  This thing obviously caught everyone off guard.

And I just drove home on I-83 through a snowstorm. A pretty good one.

What hell is that about?
