Update from the middle of the BIG storm

If you watch the news or the weather you know that we are in the middle of a giant storm here in Reno. Last Wednesday I picked up my grandson Aidan (16 months) in the Bay Area and brought him back with me to spend a few days in Reno with Grandma and Grandpa. His parents were going to come up and pick him up on Friday. I knew we were  in for a big storm but decided to bring him home with me anyway in spite of the fact that it was unlikely that Bill and Shannon would make it up here.

The storm started yesterday (Friday) with exciting big winds and torrential rains. About five o’clock the rain changed to snow and when we woke up this morning we were buried in about 18 inches of beautiful white powder. Duke went out to shovel and I took Aidan out to experience snow for the first time. He is not at all sure about the stuff but he has added the word snow to his growing vocabulary.


Interstate 80 which goes back to the bay area has either had chain requirements or been closed since the storm started. Once I can drive over the mountains without needing chains I’ll take Aidan home. It is snowing hard again now so that may be a while. Until then we are having fun with him here.
