Status Report

The Northwest is covered in massive snow! We measured the snow on the ground in our yard at seven inches this afternoon, and it is supposed to continue to fall for quite a while.

I was in the Tri-Cities the last couple of days, and made it back alive. Tons of snow there too. Yesterday (Jan. 1) evening I was driving down I-82 from Richland to Pasco (going less than 35 MPH on the 70 MPH freeway) and hit black ice and spun around in circles and hit the cement dividing wall. Bent up my bumper a bit, knocked off my front license plate (optional in Washington anyway). No real damage to me or the car.

I got all the way from the Pasco to Palouse (over 100 miles) without incident this afternoon, then going around the corner to my house I slid off the road into my own yard and got stuck, so I left my car there. Very convenient place to slide off the road. Snow is fun, but not for driving!
