Poor weather driving conditions
#1
I passed a terrible multi vehicle accident on I-10 on my way home from a job yesterday. It was just inside NM at AZ/NM state line. As many of you know, this area is notable for it's severe dust storms and multi vehicle accidents. There were at least 25 vehicles involved on both east and west sides. The news last night said multiple fatalities.  I was east bound and the wreck,s only a couple of them on east side were out of traffic lanes.  West side was another story.  Trucks piled up on top of each other and cars.  It makes you realize how fortunate we are to have fully contained living quarters to find a safe place to pull off highway and just wait out the poors conditions in comfort.  Driving past it reminded me of the pictures on the highway going north out of Kuwait City at the end of the Gulf War.  Just a reminder to all of us to take the time to be safe in our travels.
