It's really coming down right now

It's snowing pretty hard. This is the hardest snow I've seen since Christmas 2003. That was some crazy shiz. We went to Alene's parents for Christmas today and the drive home absolutely sucked. Super strong wind-gusts. Couldn't see the lines on the freeway for the lanes. Cars driving all over the place. It wouldn't be so bad if it were just me driving on the road, but you have all these other idiots that you have to watch out for.

The one thing I'm very thankful for is the truck. I have a 1/2 ton Chevy pickup that just grips the ground like no other. Driving on the freeway was really a cinch, but like I said it was the other drivers I had to worry about. Not once did I feel like the truck was out of control or about to lose control.

Here's a picture of the drive down (this is I-15 south-bound around Layton):

Driving home on Christmas

It ended up taking us close to two hours to drive from Roy to our home in taylorsville (usually takes about 45 minutes).


  1. I really don't think it is a good idea to take pictures while driving, no matter how great your truck is!! We have lots of snow for this area and the other drivers are scary! I think all of those who can't drive in snow or are nervouse should be forced to ride the bus. Their drivers licence could say some thing like idiot driver in snow - MUST ride the short bus!

  2. Oh - Merry Christmas, glad you had a good day. Wish we could have been there!
