One October, my wife and I spent a vacation on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula. We were eager to visit the rain forests near the coast, but we heard that snow slides had made some of the roads impassable. Although apprehensive about the conditions we might run into, we drove on.

Sure enough, we had only gone a short way up the Hoh Rain Forest road when we saw a sign that read, “Ice: 10 Miles.” Five miles farther on, there was another sign that said, “Ice: 5 Miles.” The next one read, “Ice: 1/2 Mile.”

We practically crept that half-mile. We finally came to the last sign. It was outside a small grocery store and it said, “Ice: 75 Cents.”
