    I live in DC now but was born and raised in Columbus where my SIL was throwing me a bridal shower yesterday. So my MOH and I head to the airport on Friday night to fly to Columbus but when we got to the airport, we found out that our flight was cancelled and we couldn't get on another flight until Saturday night. My SIL has been planning this shower since last June or so and I know she has gone to so much trouble and has been so excited about it. There was no way I was going to miss it. So my MOH and I just decide to drive instead. We left the DC area at 8pm and hit every kind of weather you could imagine. The fog was so horrible that I couldn't even see the front of my car or the lines on the side of the road but it didn't last too long. We were doing okay until we got just inside the Ohio border. It hailed, it rained, it sleeted and it snowed and snowed and snowed. Cars were off in the ditch. We saw other cars spin out but I was determined to make it so we kept driving although very slow and finally arrived in Columbus at my brother's house at 3:30am. I thought my MOH was going to kill me!
    But we woke up to about a foot or so of snow and by the time it was done I think it was close to 20 inches and the most surprising part was that everyone but 3 people ended up coming to the shower and it was fantastic! But the snow was really beautiful. We don't get that in DC but if we did the city would shut down for a month!

          Good for you...I probably would have chickened out and checked into a hotel when the weather got horrible! I'm glad you made it and all went well :)

              I am from Central Ohio originally too (Newark Area). I am now in NW corner of Ohio and we got about 6 inches. My parents had came up on Thursday and ended up being stuck here to Sunday. Not that I minded. I don't get to see them nearly enough!
              Glad you made it there and back safely though!

                  Haha. I am a little crazy. So many people gave me grief about making the trip because they didn't think it was safe but I have dealt with snow for 23 years or so. I lived in Minnesota after Ohio so I am used to driving in the snow. Plus I have a 4 wheel drive which helps. My MOH really wanted to kill me after I slid around some corners. Mind you I warned her first and did it on purpose because isn't oh so fun?

                  I miss the snow!
