As a taxi driver tells John that he was smart to leave the car at home, we switch focus to find Elly ending up stranded.

(Strip Number 1248, Original Publication Date, 22 January 1988)

Panel 1: As he cabs to work, John tells the driver that he and his co-workers must be really busy. The driver confirms this.

Panel 2: He then says that John's smart not to drive in this because the radio says there's gonna be a real blizzard today. John says 'Yeah' in response.

Panel 3: He then says that the wife has the only car in the family that can get through weather like this.

Panel 4: We shift focus to find a baffled Elly stuck in a snow bank because she drove into a ditch like the some-weather motorist she is.

Summary: This means that we end the week with the anticipation that a police constable will tell her to return home because roads are closed and that John will arrive to a closed office and shut down downtown core. I hope standing on principle was worth it.
