I thought I should check in with you all. We are still in the Denver area visiting our son. We drove in our van and brought everything with us, including Maggie. Even the proverbial kitchen sink but sadly, not the cord to my camera. So unfortunately I can't download any pictures until I get home.
The drive here was, let's say, interesting. Once we hit Needles, California the wind started up. Bad wind. Nasty wind. Then the further east we got the more I started getting nervous about the impending storm. We spent the night in Grants, New Mexico and didn't know if we could get any further. We trudged on, though. Albuquerque wasn't bad so we went on to Santa Fe. Not bad. So off we went. The main storm was the day before we arrived there, but there was still some flakes coming down. However, the roads were icy and slushy and curvy and"mountainy". I had a death grip on the steering wheel all the way from Santa Fe to Colorado Springs, Colorado. Check out a map. That's a long way!!! Whew!
We arrived safely, though. Monday I took our son back to Colorado Springs for his surgery on his deviated septum. All went well, thankfully. The staff at the hospital at the Air Force Academy are awesome!!! We were supposed to take him back for a follow-up on Wednesday but a new storm had come in. Basically, the road was either closed or dangerous from Denver to Santa Fe. So we sat here and waited it out.
Our little Maggie is quite the traveler. She did great in the car and in the motels. She's playing really well with her new friend Abby, my son's dog. She is turning into quite the snow bunny. When the snow was soft and deep, I had to give her a warm bath each time she came in. She was covered in little snow balls! Right now she's outside sitting in the snow waiting for an unsuspecting squirrel to wander by.
Sweety and I (and Maggie) are having a wonderful time visiting our son and enjoying the area. I'll check in later.
