New Year's Eve...
I started home Saturday the 29th from Billings. The highway was reasonable considering that it is winter! I stopped in Sheridan and had lunch with Ed and Cathy. Cathy is so cute; she asked me if I wanted a little chocolate torte for dessert. I didn't want to hurt her feelings so I said okay. She brought me the biggest piece of chocolate cake that I have ever seen! Ed laughed when I saw it and Cathy had a twinkle in her eye; a good joke on Aunt Jo! LOL
Then I went on to Casper and visited with M&M Family and stayed the night with Aunt Goldie. What a wonderful visit I have had with all of my family this vacation.
Sunday morning I headed for home and had good roads until I hit Muddy Gap. I experienced one of our famous "horizontal snowstorms." The wind was blowing from the southwest at about 45-50 mph. The last 40 miles into Rawlins was the longest in history!
When I got to Rawlins, the Interstate was closed and the motels were filling up with truckers and other travelers so I called my good friend Loretta and she was kind enough to give me a hot meal and a warm bed to sleep in. We had a good visit catching up and had lots of laughs. That snow storm had a silver lining as I am usually in too big of a hurry to get home when I go through to give her a call!
I headed for home this morning around 9:00 a.m. and arrived around 10:30 a.m. I had plenty of time to unload my car, put things away and do my laundry with plenty of time to take a nap!
Happy New Year everyone.... 2008 will be a great year!
