I wound up spending the day flying to Burbank, driving from there to Escondido, and then back from Escondido to Santa Cruz at 3am in my Fiancee's Ford Explorer in high wind and snow. Ugh. While I was happy to be with my Fiancee, all in all I'd rather we'd been driving with you folks rather than in the snow down the grapevine with idiots that can't drive on rain, let alone the white-stuff!
Hopefully we'll make it on the 17th!
: We met up with Ralph and Pam and Kyle and Betty (saw Leon, too, before we took off) for a nice drive up to the wine country, yesterday, April 3rd. Seems the rest of the Bay area unexpectedly was hit with everything from hail and snow to 50 mph winds and funnel clouds, but we had a great drive (no other cars! Hurray!) through the hills (up to Lake Berryessa & Holden Mtn. Road, to St. Helena and Napa, then over to Sonoma on Trinty Rd.). Kept the tops down (okay, after a late lunch in Sonoma we put them up because it was getting chilly)-
: The BAD gods were obviously keeping us in their care ;)
: Anybody busy on April 17th?
