Good news. We got to see my great aunt and uncle today for the first time in years. It was so awesome! We stopped at their house on our way to our friend's house in southern California. I definately want to make plans to go out to their house more often -- I know the kids would love to visit there too (they live on a lake and already Liam has plans for fishing). I think next summer we'll plan on spending several days with them.
Bad news. Traffic sucks. Snow sucks.
This photo was taken while at an almost standstill driving into California this morning. What should have only taken 3 hours to get to my great aunt & uncle's house took closer to 4.
And if the snow wasn't bad enough (that only lasted about 1/4 of the way into the trip) we then got stopped for 45 minutes for road construction. This next photo is our view for about 1/2 of that time (at a virtual standstill -- we could have walked faster than we were moving):
Good news. We made it here to Southern California in one piece -- even if the second half of our trip was filled with traffic, traffic and more traffic. I know why they call the 91 a parking lot -- though I-15 was pretty much a parking lot too. Ugh. So, we're safe, sound and happy. Tomorrow we're off to Disneyland to have a little fun in the sun. :-)
