For the most part the roads were OK. But in Utah County -- especially in the Provo-Orem area -- it looked like I-15 hadn't even been plowed.
We spent Monday night in Henderson, NV, just south of Las Vegas, at a Hawthorne Suites. Not fancy, but it's dog friendly, clean, and barely off our route.
The big story on the Las Vegas TV stations was a predicted New Years' Eve snowstorm. Reporters were passing along ideas on how to save your desert plants (wrap them in old fashioned Christmas lights) and pointers on how to avoid hypothermia while partying on the strip (dress in layers and don't forget hats and gloves; my advice, however is: stay home.) Jim just checked the Las Vegas weather and it's 31 but feels like 19. If it feels like 19, my party is definitely moving indoors.
Meanwhile, we arrived in Yuma yesterday afternoon, where it's a chilly 43 as I write and a little windy. It's winter-jacket-but-no-boots weather.
Happy New Year everyone!
|Driving on I-15 near Provo's Center Street exit about 9:30 Monday morning. Did Provo forget to collect taxes for snow removal or something?|
|Highway 95 going south toward Yuma. Much more pleasant.|
