So driving to Napa proved to be more challenging than I thought. Who would have thought that we’d hit a massive, January or February-style snow storm in mid-March?!?!
Sorry for the blurriness, but we were driving down the freeway. And this was really early in the morning…I think it was about 6 in the morning on the 20th. We had left at about 11:30 p.m. on the 19th.
The closer we got to Mt. Shasta, the hairier it got. At Weed, we had to chain up.
And me, being the silly goose that I am, forgot how the nice gentleman at Les Schwab Tire Center told me to put on my chains. In my defense, though, I bought them over a year ago, so of course I’m going to forget!!! 🙂
Luckily, a very nice gentleman who was chaining up behind us was willing to help and, as luck would have it, he had just put the same chains I have on his car!!
So after a very slow trip over Mt. Shasta, we finally got to take our chains off and continue our journey.
We arrived, safe and sound at our hotel (which, I didn’t get a picture of, but it’s probably a good thing…that’s another story *grr*) and crashed. It was a long, pretty journey…with some suck-tacular parts.
What would Monday hold?
Well, my other passion is racing. If it’s got 4 wheels, an engine and goes like hell, then I adore it. So of course, Monday’s first stop was Andretti Winery.
…but I’ll save that for the next post.
