Well...we made it. We went over hill and dale to get here. We first went up the coast of California to avoid the Grapevine which was supposed to be icy. We cut over to the 5 above Sacramento. At that point it was raining. We then traveled nonstop in rain. We kept trudging along and went through snowy and icy conditions, but we made it to Medford. After spending the night there, we traveled through snow, ice, wind and rain through the rest of the mountains. We got a break from severe weather when we were between the mountain area and Salem OR. After that it was a white-out to about Vancouver, WA. It was very slow-going. I kept getting nervous because we didn't have chains; we apparently are not supposed to use them on our car. The only thing we could use cost $500 or more and that wasn't an option. Anyway, our snow tires did the job and got us here safely about 9pm last night. Now, we are relaxing and enjoying being out of the car. By the way, Riley was the best traveler in the car. He did great! He must be a dog that is born to travel! He is afraid of my Mom's pomeranian though! He! He!
Have a blessed day!
