Although it is always a bit nerve wracking to drive under those conditions, the drive was spectacularly beautiful. We were scheduled to leave Sunday morning, but we were snowed in after receiving 4-5 feet of fresh snow between Saturday and Sunday. All roads were closed in and out. We thought Monday was a no go as well, but they managed to avalanche blast and clear the southbound route by 4 p.m. It was a very slow go down the mountainside with a CHP caravan and chains, but the drive was phenomenal. It was just in time as the food supply was dwindling as well as the wine!!! There were many Donner Party jokes passing about as we checked out the fat content of each person. lol
The chains came off just as the sun set and we were more than happy for that. We have for years thought it would be fun to get snowed in up there, but now we can say that we have "been there and done that". I'm okay with not repeating the thrill.
While we were there we celebrated one of the little one's birthday. Our daughter made the cutest cupcakes for a hamburger loving little guy.
Today I finally managed to get into the sewing space for a little stitching time. The Temperature Quilt QAL has been calling my name this year. I have dutifully keep a record of our temperatures and have caught up to date using a Flying Geese pattern for it.
I'm looking forward to adding some of the oranges and reds as it warms up a bit here. Right now I seem to be very green!!!
