I was almost wiped out by a Carroll County plow yesterday at the corner of 97 and 140. His blade was coming into my lane and I had to quickly jerk the wheel and get over. This happened in the left hand turn lane on 97.

Which is why people should stay home instead of venturing out in such conditions. Sunday... stay in... stay safe.... stay out of the way of these men and woman who are trying to do thier jobs.
