20: A Deadly Blizzard Aftermath
Snow and icy conditions are enough to cause major weather damage, and one trucker saw a disturbing sight after a storm. “As I drive, I start to notice these large dark rock-like shapes sticking out of the snow just off the shoulder of the road. Tons of them, like one every 10-15 feet. “Strange,” I thought absently. I’d never been on that road so who knows what they could be. After a few minutes, I spotted one that was not-so-buried in the snow and the realization sank slowly into me.
They were cows. I drove past probably 40 corpses just off the side of the road, literally just past the shoulder. Made me very sad to think they all froze to death, wandering blindly in the snowstorm.” – via Money Awaits. This just goes to show you that even after a significant storm has passed, driving conditions can be quite dangerous following a storm.
