If you are reading this blog, you probably have figured out that I am intending on making my way across the country from San Francisco along the northern part of the country via Oregon and Idaho.
So of course, I am taking the ‘direct’ route and immediately headed south to visit family – in Solvang CA (Pete and Tenley). The drive down was easy, but I did get hit with sporadic showers, heavy down pours and one time really heavy hail which slowed traffic on the Interstate down to a crawl – I was able to see over an inch of ice accumulation on the road – then “poof” and we came through the other side. Any rain at this point in California is welcome but I don’t think the sporadic nature of this particular storm will put much of a dent in the drought.
