I see that the December 21st arrived, and contrary to what the Mayans have foretold, we are still here. Craig and I have been dealing with trying to deliver a load of frozen fries in a blizzard. We thought we had avoided the bullet on Wednesday, when we received the load and headed to Warden, WA to the Columbia Cold Storage. On our way, we ran into quite a bit of snow falling down, making it look very much like a winter wonderland.
Awaking this morning to our snow covered truck, we took survey of our surroundings, checked the Internet, and was even able to talk to a CHP officer that was driving through the rest area. We slowly took off, only to be stopped at a chain inspection area, where we were told a big rig had spun out near the bridge and that truck traffic would not be allowed through for at least a couple of hours. With that we pulled off to the side of the road and presently await word on when we will be allowed through. We know from looking at the radar, that we only have about 15 miles to go to hit rain and be out of the snow........at least for today
