...well my son & I drove up to Pasco WA Tuesday (and back that same night) in that damn snowstorm!!!
We did just fine in my Scion Toaster...but the morons who don't know how to drive in this stuff were all over the place. We did fine up 'till the Dalles...where an 18 wheeler got jacknifed all over the road...completely blocking I-84. We sat in a 14 mile line for over an HOUR!!!
It was then that I noticed an off-ramp just on the other side of the semi truck we were next to. (we were in the left lane)...so we skirted around him on the shoulder and got off the freeway. We went through town 'till we could make the 197 bridge over the Columbia River. Once we got to the other side, it was pretty clear, and we blasted down 14 until we got to Biggs Jct, where we crossed back over to Oregon and got back on a now empty I-84, that we took the rest of the way up to our turnoff to go up to Pasco.
So why did we go up to Pasco & back in one day in this crappy driving weather...to pick up my daughter we met there, who drove over from Missoula MT., where she's going to college. Grabbed her and hauled ass fer home.
My son just returned home on Thursday night from Australia, where he's been for the last 2 months too!
Thanksgiving is gonna be a BLAST at our house this year!!! Hoping it's the same for all of you!
