Freezing in Murdo, South Dakota [March 23, 2009]

Posted by OurVolvo.com on Mar 23, 2009 in 1993 Volvo 940 |

I believe the coldest that I was the entire trip was in Murdo, South Dakota. I didn’t even know there was a Murdo, but know I will never forget that yes, and thank God there is a Murdo. The City of Murdo is located at the crossroads of Interstate 90 and Highway 83 in the middle of South Dakota where the Central Time Zone meets the Mountain Time Zone.

Due to the closing of I-90 as a result of a blizzard we found ourselves in the last room left of Super 8 Motel in Murdo, South Dakota. Well lets say my owners were enjoying the hot tub of the “last” room left in the hotel and I was left outside to survive the blizzard.

But not to worry, it just happened that at this particular stop there was the Pioneer Auto Museum and lets just say I got acquainted very quickly. After two days of being in below freezing temperatures and with several feet of snow on me, I started up with no problem purring like a little kitten and in no time my seats were warm and toasty for my owners after they shoveled the snow to get to me.
