I write this post with wireless access from the Staybridge Suites where we are stranded in the high deserts of LA. We were planning on being in San Diego today, but a "historical" snowstorm hit Southern California and here we are. We knew there was going to be a little weather, so we opted to take the desert route, which is less mountainous...in retrospect that was not a good decision. Of course, this sucks, but we are blessed and had many prayers answered. We drove for 6 hours and went nowhere, yet no one had a major meltdown (though I was close). We couldn't see anything nor drive above 15 mph, yet our car stayed on the road. And the town we finally found gave us the last room of the last hotel (someone was literally calling to cancel their reservation when Dave walked in). We thank God for safety and shelter, but what the heck? WE MOVED TO CALIFORNIA TO GET AWAY FROM THIS TYPE OF THING!!!
