Day 3: We were up with the chickens or should I say cows this morning as the winds and rain kept us up most of the night. The lovely sound of pitter-patter on the roof only goes so far. Thankfully the horrible wind was to our back today so maybe our gas miles will improve. I did a spreadsheet in the computer to keep tract of that sorta thing. Have to keep the driver happy.
We traveled south on hwy 84 from Idaho to Utah. We were absolutely shocked when we came around a corner and saw snow.
I thought this was a cool photo, farming in the foreground and snow on the foothills. Then before we knew it the snow was right along side the road.
And last but not least was this closeup of the mountain we were driving thru.....
Then as we were nearing Salt Lake City, it started to rain and you will NOT guess what happened. Yep, the wipers didn't work. We had just had our little, yipee conversation, that nothing had gone wrong today and that we were so proud of ourselves and then wham.......no wipers. We just looked at each other and laughed. Thank goodness we had this stuff called Rainex on the windshield. The drops just ran off. Our park here is nice but it's cold and really windy. Walk about 3/4 mile to Albertsons to get some lettuce and a flyswatter. Oh, and we walked home and no flyswatter. Oh well, the lettuce was sure good and DH's motorcylce magazines work just fine on the flies. My fingers are crossed for tomorrow. So...to bed early and hope we can get a good nights sleep. See you tomorrow...........happy trails
