To & fro

The trip to Indianola started Thursday after work. I drove through a dark and stormy night to Diana's home in Davis.

Weather forecasts warned of a big Arctic storm coming down from the north. What an inauspicious start for a trip taking us over high mountain passes near the California-Oregon border.

My travelling companion, Diana, wanted to cancel the whole trip. I doggedly held high hopes of getting through it. After checking road conditions, we started out the next morning. Through rain, light snow flurries and biting cold winds we got through all the passes to Eugene, Oregon. Optimism rewarded.

From there it was free sailing Indianola. And free sailing on the return back. Lots of rain. The weather warmed up. No snow. Just two very tired persons: one napped while the other drove.
