You keep making me come back for more questions. It's your experience.
I am planning to come back to NJ either two days before New Years, New Years Eve or New Years Day.
What do you think will be the best travel day where I won't experience the parking lot you did in Virginia/Washington? I know that area well on 95 and it often comes to a complete standstill. I think they are doing lots of expansion there so hopefully in the future that problem will be alleviated somewhat.
Drive safe on the way home.
I just almost became a hood ornament on a NY state DOT snowplow that slid way across the center line turning at an intersection in town. We both got stopped with less than 5' between my front bumper and his plow. Ready for spring already and winter has barely begun.
The threat with winter driving has always been this one for me. I trust my own abilities to negotiate icy and snow covered roads. It's the other drivers around me that frighten me. Always keep your eyes peeled for the people about to make mistakes.
I won't even trust the snowplow drivers after today. Always thought if anyone was safe to be around on bad roads, those guys were.
