Snowy Mother's Day

Aloha Everyone,

Last night at about 8:00 PM I heard thumping sounds on the roof of our RV home. I initially thought it was a large cat or ravens walking around our roof making the noises. Well, it turned out to be a snow storm.

Woke up to the winter wonderland with nearly 5 inches of snow fall.

According to Gail, the RV park manager, this was the most snow she has seen this winter. J.J.decided for us to leave for a "warmer" climate rather than stay on for another snowy day.

This was about the worst segment of I-15 N.  Usual 2 lane highway was reduced to single lane.  We witness 2 road mishaps, but both appeared to have been an accident with no other vehicles involved.  This was extremely fortunate considering the visibility at times was reduced to only 4 cars lengths ahead of us.ahead.

After tense driving in the snowy weather for 4 hours, our lunch break was a welcome respite. The restaurant is called the One Man Band Diner.  You place your order by using the telephone on your table. When the order is ready, the alarm sounds to let you know.

I loved the Thai Hot Soup with rice. My salad was so-so. The scone, which I was looking forward to, looked like and tasted like a Navajo Fried Bread.

The snow stopped falling as we approached Provo, Utah.

The funny thing was comparing my footwear from yesterday and today.  Quite a big change from overnight.

Tonight we are staying near Layton, Utah.  View from one of our windows.

It's 8:30 PM Mountain Time. Today's driving was tense and mentally & physically challenging for J.J.  He is already fast asleep.

Aloha -- Cathi
