Our original route to Seattle had us going straight through the state of Montana and up until today that was the plan. However, upon finding out that there was going to be sub-zero temperatures and possible snow for the entire week, we were forced to swallow our pride and look for a new way to get to our next Road Tour stop. That meant we had to make roughly a 10 hour U-turn and head towards Salt Lake City, where the weather is supposed to subside earlier in the week.
However, with the storm on its way, the clock was ticking to get somewhere safe before the roads were closed. That place was Rawlins, Wyoming, but the storm hit us before we could get here and we had to drive through some intense weather just to make it here. All I can say is that I will take downtown New York or LA traffic all day long, compared to near white out conditions that we drove through tonight.
From here, the biggest challenge is making it over that group of little hills they call "The Rockies", and into Salt Lake City. Once in Salt Lake City, the drive should be a little smoother. But until then, we may have to spend tomorrow in good old Rawlins if the weather is unfriendly. Somehow, someway, we will make it to Seattle, we just might need a little help from someone upstairs.
