An unbelievable bad-weather day

| March 18, 2012

We learned from the news that we were on the edge of a big winter storm that hit Arizona and closed parts of some freeways. While the weather presented a difficult driving day to us, it did not stop us in our tracks like it did some people.

• Before I close today’s blog entry, I also learned today what it is like to drive the new U.S. 93 truck route by Hoover Dam. Learned when Diane told me.

I was in the sleeper then. It was just after sunset so if there was something to see, Diane did not see it. The new road is more significant then the view. After 911, trucks were prohibited from driving over the Hoover Dam. We had to take a different route that was less fun. A new bridge was built for truck and the going is easier now. This was our first time across that bridge.
