March got all lionish on us

We made a very adult decision last night after driving for over 100 miles on unplowed highways to stop at a hotel in PA. We were greeted this morning by 5ish inches of snow, an unplowed hotel parking lot with a car-attracting arborvitae border to get stuck in, and pieces of the car undercarriage which had repurposed themselves as either snowplows or rudders, depending on the speed if the vehicle.

We got ourselves unstuck, found a lovely and helpful service department at Independence Honda in Bloomsberg PA, and scooted down the road. It was a gorgeous blue skies morning and the crystalline forests convinced us that we’d stopped driving right in time, just before discovering the ice storm.
