My travels

My daughter and a friend were talking over the weekend. The friend asked my daughter if I was still snowed in with Aidan in Reno. The answer is no. I should have posted a quick update last week. It makes me smile when some one mentions reading my blog so I need to keep it current.

I have been busy since my last posting. I’ve driven 1300 miles, handed Aidan off to his parents, had dinner with a good friend and helped my Dad move to Reno. On Monday the 7th I watched the Caltrans road conditions web site until they lifted the chain restrictions on Interstate 80. Then Aidan and I loaded up and headed for the Bay Area. The roads were clear and dry but Wow! was there a lot of snow. I would estimate that there was about 10 feet of snow on either side of the road as I went over Donner Pass.  When I got to the Bay Area I handed Aidan off to his parents, had dinner with a friend spent the night at another friend’s house and then early Tuesday morning I drove to my Dad’s house in Escondido.

One of my sisters joined me there for the weekend. We got Dad’s house ready to sell and loaded up the truck to move him to Reno. As Dad and I left Escondido early Tuesday morning we looked like the Beverly Hillbillies. Although I guess if we really wanted to look like the Clampetts Dad should have ridden on the recliner in the back. He didn’t. He rode with me in front. It was a beautiful sunny day. The roads were clear although there was a lot of snow between Bishop and Reno.


Now that I’m home and unpacked I’m catching up. Most of the snow from last week here in Reno has melted and although it is cold the sun is shining. It is good to be home.
