Happy New Year! (The Storm Edition)

We had a wonderful weekend in San Diego celebrating Christmas, the end of 2010 and the beginning of 2011. I'll post more about that this week, but here's how we ended our trip: getting stuck in a blizzard! Hurray for us! We left San Diego at 9:30am hoping to avoid some of the storm. We figured we'd hit some of it in the mountains, but not nearly as much as we did. Take a look at the photos in this post. These were taken long after we had escaped the worst parts and were home free. Hard to believe. (Getting out my camera and documenting the experience were two of the last things on my mind earlier that afternoon.) We experienced an excessive amount of snow and wind, plus ice, sliding cars, sitting in traffic, crawling in traffic, me being scared, cars on the side of the road, Maggie being an awesome passenger, Chad being a rock star driver and finally freedom after four hours of being in the stormy mountain. Turns out they had closed the Ridge Route at some point while we were up there, but we were already inside so... The good news is that we made it and the whole ordeal is over.
