(Strip Number 4919, Original Publication Date, 23 January 1988)
Panel 1: As Elly tries to extricate herself from the ditch she drove into, someone thumps on her passenger side window and asks if she's all right in there.
Panel 2: The 'someone' turns out to be a police constable who tells her she'll have to leave her car where it is; this is because there's no way to get her out since traffic is backed up for miles.
Panel 3: She agrees to his suggestion that she head for home and wait out the blizzard.
Panel 4: Since she decided to drive to work in white-out conditions, she's freaking out just a little bit because she can't tell which way home actually is.
Summary: This is one of the first arcs in which Elly's failure to plan for a disaster comes back to bite her in the ass. Since the power goes out later in the week, we can probably expect them to have to call in a plumber when the pipes freeze and burst. Also, just don't ask her about the weeping tiles.
