My odd shot for this week. check out more at
Well this week our family was travelling in BC, to get together as a family. Of course we had a few interesting things happen. I will tell you a few in this and the next few blogs.
On one day we were in the town of Castlegar and woke up to snow. Of course we had to travel over one of the toughest mountain passes in the area. We checked the web cam on the bc highway web site and it was snowing quite alot. As not travelled that pass in the winter before I was a bit leary. Would we get stuck? Would it be closed ? and many other things passed thru my mind.
Well we started out. snow coming down a lot but we were still moving and not a lot of traffic. Now I'm wondering why not a lot of traffic. It was Sunday morning so I decided that was it not that it was unsafe. We made it to the top and what do we find but a line up before we head down. It just so happens that they are doing avalanche control and delays up to 2 hrs. So there we wait.
Well it only took 1/2 hr and then we were let go. It went quite uneventful on the way down and that part of the trip was now accomplished. But there was a bit of nail biting and prayer as we were on the first part going up not knowing how bad it would get. But now that it was done. A piece of cake. Tomorrow I will tell you about a even more interesting event on that drive.
ok till then
