Where did this come from???

Yesterday we had a beautiful day, sunshine with a few clouds, and in the low 40's. We woke up this morning to about 3-4 inches of snow and it is still coming down like crazy. I got my husband and kids out the door at our normal time. He takes the kids to school and heads to work and I am the one who picks them up and runs them all over the place like practices etc.

Well this morning was not much different, I get a call from my husband about 1 minute later, like he usually does each morning, though this time it was not to tell me that he forgot something or to finish a conversation etc. Instead I hear "honey I need you to call a tow truck, the truck slid into the ditch and I can't get it out" followed by "then I need you to come down here to take the kids to school."

Thank goodness everyone was ok! After I called for a tow truck I headed out to go get the kids and access the damage. Well when I got to the bottom of our hill here is what I saw... and my heart just sank to see our new truck like this...... Mind you, at the front end of the truck, it is about a 50 foot drop down to the river bed I am so thank for for the out come that we were so blessed to of had, because it could have been so much worse of an out come.

Everyone please be safe out there.

Thank you Lumi, believe it or not, the only damage was a few scratches, no dents or major damage. So thankful that God was watching out for my family.

Yikes! Heather, so glad your family is OK! And hope your new truck didn't suffer any damage. It sounds similar to the storm that hit here. It was nice and all of a sudden yesterday afternoon, it started snowing and we ended up with 6 inches just like that. Very slick out as well. Guess your kids had a story to share at school!

What saved the truck from going completely over, is there was a berm of dirt and a barbwire fence. The truck broke the top wire and the remaining two wires were stretched pretty tight as well as the back end of the truck was some what high centered on the berm.

I'm glad no one was hurt and that they're all safe, but what a scary scene! We're expecting snow tonight but I'm hoping it blows right through without leaving much of anything.
