Snow Storm

My Bunco pals and I rented a big beautiful cabin at Donner Lake for the weekend. We all attempted to travel up I80 yesterday afternoon only to be caught in the big snow storm. There was a 45 car pile up near Baxter and haz mat was called in for a truck spill. Five friends that left about and hour before I did ended up in a grid lock on the freeway for five hours before being turned back. Kim and I, in the second car, only made it up to Colfax before being turned back - took us three hours in total to go only approximately 30 miles. Cal Trans closed the freeway. We got snow down to Auburn which is pretty rare! Wish I had taken my camera to show the amounts of snow we were dealing with. So pretty but so scary. We all are grateful to be home safely. The nice owners of the cabin are allowing us to reschedule our trip too! So we'll go in a month or two when there is no chance of snow so we can enjoy the lovely deck over looking the lake.

Here's to wishing you all a safe, wonderful weekend.

Hi Pam,
Oh! That does sound scary! I'm so glad you all made it back safe and sound. It will be twice as special when you finally get to do it!
Patricia :o)

Hi Jan,
Mom is doing pretty well for breaking her hip and her leg at 86 years old. It took the energy out of her though. Sorry to hear you had to do the hip replacement surgery and pray you get full recovery soon!
Warm hugs,

Hi Patricia,
I get to go soon to our trip. It is always so much fun to get away with the girls. Most of us have been in this Bunco group for nine years or so. Thanks for the comment!

Warm hugs,
