Timed out for travel and return home weather challenges

Sorry about not posting for past 2 weeks.  I moved to stay with friends near South Padre Island for a few days then packed up for return trip home.  Terrible weather--snow and freezing rain in the northern and western areas that I could travel through to get home. Then woke to freezing fog that had laid a thin layer of ice on everything including the roads so stayed extra night in Junction,Tx.  When I got near Amarillo I saw this fog bank (looks like mountains in the distance) looming ahead--and the weather radio reported it was freezing fog with travel advisory so had to backtrack to a highway I could head west into New Mexico to try to stay ahead of it-I did and made it home the following day.  SeEtta
