A Quick trip to Rock Creek...and White Knuckling it Back

Hey hi everyone! :-)

Hope everyone had a great week.  I was so excited to finish work on Friday because it is the beginning of Spring Break  Yayyyy!   First thing on the agenda was a few days at Rock Creek to bring my rv home for some projects.  So went up early Saturday morning and was planning on staying until Monday afternoon.  But as the four of us were lounging in bed on Sunday morning listening CBC the news broadcast said a sudden snow storm as moving in to higher elevations and the mountain areas and roads would be getting six inches of snow.  So I flew out of bed and started getting things together.  There was no way I could afford to be trapped up there while highway people  were clearing snow.  Everything came together very quickly.  Bill Godfrey, who was conducting the WT for his congregation got home just after lunch, came over and checked my tires and topped them off and then we were flying down the road.  If was odd/funny, that as soon as I started driving with the RV in tow the dogs all sacked out completely.  They just slept and slept which was nice because as soon as we hit Beaverdell the snow started.  It was coming down pretty heavy all the way through Big White.  I had it in my mind that if it started packing on the road then we would just pull over, climb into the RV, and wait for everything to be cleared.  However, it was still early enough in the day that temperatures kept it watery when it hit the highway.  Tonight will probably be another story once the temps drop.  But the high point is that we got back!!!  The pups had a few good walks and runs up there and I had a couple hours of sharing a drink in front of the fire with Jan and Bill at their place.  Jan is regular pioneering up there.  She says even though they drive miles and miles through their mountainous and ranch territory she has a good call or study each time she goes out.  She says her two service partners are a 90 year old couple.  They like to go out for 7 and 8 hour days and it just works out perfect for her.  Anyway, even though the trip was cut short by weather it was still a wonderful time.  Now, I am going to join Otto, Harvey and Pearl and lay like a vegetable on the bed.

Love to all,
d  :-)
