What A Winter Blizzard Taught Me About People
Show Notes

Yesterday I drove in the middle of the winter Blizzard coming back from up north Wisconsin. Needless to say the weather was terrible and there were white out conditions and if you have never driven in such weather it can be extremely dangerous. One of the most interesting things that I noticed was a long single line behind me and in front of me. The left lane was open but not plowed so I thought it was very interesting that everybody conformed to the single line. I thought to myself the only reason people could be doing this was for safety reasons. We all agreed to conform without really talking to each other, yet today when we get into conversations of politics or the use of the vaccination and if we have heaven forbid have different views we really don't talk and listen to each other. Yet, during a winter blizzard hundreds if not thousands of cars with people never speaking to one another conformed for the safety of one another. What an interesting thought!
