Chains, Cranes and 16 Hours in an Automobile

The whole country seems to be in the midst of a winter storm this week. Cindy, Pom Pom, Casper and I got a huge dose of winter weather when we drove from Oregon to Sacramento yesterday. We left at 10 in the morning and didn’t get in to Sac until 2 in the morning–that does indeed equal 16 hours of driving (the drive normally takes about 8 hours).

In the front seat, the humans were stressing about installing snow chains, driving through ice, and waiting in standstill traffic while road crews cleaned up tons of car accidents.

In the back seat, two little dogs were sleeping in blanket heaven.

I really thought they’d get anxious, impatient and eventually plot some sort of doggie rebellion, but they slept most of the drive, ate some dinner and even happily peed in the freezing, snowy cold.

Hopefully the drive back sucks much, much less.
