Last Saturday

Last Saturday I was laying in bed texting my last post about going to the when a call came in erasing my post. It was Joseph. He had left about 7:30 am for work at south town mall. The morning was unusually snowy. The snow really started Friday night and I actually had the thought that night that the snow was going to cause our family a wreck. So Joseph got to the other side of the point of the mountain, a typically more dangerous part of the freeway, and did a couple of spins on the ice. He ended up in the right shoulder, er... Passed the right shoulder where the jeep had run into a wire type fence. He told us about what had happened and we got his location just as the highway patrol got there. We jumped out of bed and got to him as soon as we safely could. He was sitting in the patrol car, to stay warm and safe, when we pulled up. He came back and got in with us shaken sober and prayerful. He still wanted to go into work, so we took him. We're not sure of the damages but the jeep was "undriveable". He did get a citation for going faster than conditions allowed-- bummer. We are so thankful he was ok and that no other car was involved. It could have been so much worse.
