Blizzard!!!! What? In SoCal?

Well, here I am, trapped in Ranchita because we're in the midst of a blizzard. I was on my way to work this morning and it was raining. As I got to where I turn off to head to Borrego Springs, it started snowing. It was coming down so fast and thick, that the roads were getting caked. I have to drive down a very windy and steep mountain road, so I called a friend who lives in Ranchita, hoping I could wait out the snow.

She sent her husband so I could follow him to their house, and I did. When I got there, it was becoming a pretty wicked snow storm.

So now here I sit, 8 hours later, with about 10 inches of snow on the ground, stuck. Another wave is about to hit, so it's looking like I won't make it home tonight. I just hope I can make it home tomorrow.

I missed work today. Big Sis missed school. After missing 7 days, all of which were excused because we signed an independent study contract, she has to miss, probably, the next two days too. There goes her perfect attendence!!

Friday is the start of vacation, as it's a minimum day, but I think once I get back to Hemet, it's not going to be possible to get back to Borrego before the weekend.

I should have stayed in bed.


  1. Wow. And we have barely gotten any snow here in Western Maryland! I don't think more than 1/2 an inch...if that.

  2. We are getting walloped here tomorrow! Ack!

  3. Holy are getting more snow than we are in Colorado!! SO NOT FAIR!!

  4. Now that looks like Christmas! Go make a snow man!

    I love the snow. I am from upstate NY and now that I live in Louisiana, I totally miss it.
