Snow and Power
I spent a relaxing weekend at the Bradley Lodge with my parent's and grandma. We played pinochle, watched TV, looked at excursions for our upcoming cruise and hung out with my two adopted nieces, Emmy and Elsie. The good news, we had power for the entire time we were there, the not so good news ... Highway 4 was closed for a few hours on Friday night, which delayed our arrival. Luckily, for us we have friends in Arnold that let us spend some time with them while waiting for the road to re-open. Next piece of good news, we were told the road would re-open around midnight, but I was paying attention to Twitter and Cal Trans tweeted that the road was open around 10:30 and we continued our trek up the hill. Over the course of our weekend we got about four feet of snow, which gave my dad and me plenty of opportunities to play with the snow blower and watch the professionals come by and work their magic on our driveway a few times. When we headed down the mountain on Sunday, we were snowed on all the way down to Murphy's at 2100 feet. It was beautiful to drive down Main Street and see all of the historic buildings covered in a fresh layer of snow.
