AND More Snow!
We are in Missoula now & our trip did not start out too great. 2009 better start getting better. Patrick forgot to lock the bubble on top of the car & after about 40 miles of driving a kind driver pointed to it and Pat pulled off the road. The bubble was wide open and the computer case was no longer with us, as was the case with several of my reusable grocery bags. Patrick had put the case up there stuffed full of cd's and other computer paraphernalia (who knows what?) so he turned around and we retracked our drive. Never found the computer bag....did get the other cheapy bags though. That wasted at least 2 hours. Anyway, he drove until after 1030pm, which we never do, but he wanted to make up for lost time. LOTS of ice and snow packed highway and also off and on snow showers. Slow going. Spent the night here at the Red Lion in Missoula. Okay, decent nights sleep, but awoke to a flood on the bathroom floor. Toilet overflowed. We just paid full price for the room, but the clerk said she would check with the manager about refunding some of the cost. Oh brother. Soooo friends, could you please send up a few prayers for us on our journey. Things haven't started out too great. At least we have our health!! Blessings. love, Cassie PS-The dogs have been good.
