This is Chicken Mama's mama with another entry. (I really didn't think you would be hearing from me again!)
We just got a phone call from the travelers trying to wend their way home to Minnesota. They are currently snow/ice bound in the midst of the big Colorado storm. They were fortunate to get one of the very last rooms available in a small town close to an interstate highway that is closed as of this writing. Their day of travel was slow and interspersed with moments of terror traveling through mountain passes in periods of complete whiteouts.
But the good news is they are safe and warm for the night (albeit without internet access). Forecast is for many inches of snow overnight and tomorrow so whether they'll be on the road again tomorrow remains to be seen.
Oh, Spring, wherefore art thou???
