We had to travel from Seattle to Spokane last week, and when Keith G. loaned us his car and his wife Florence started talking about chains, we NEVER dreamed we’d actually have to use them! After all, the crocuses were blooming in their front yard!
Well, we got to Snoqualmie Pass, and sure enough, the snow was falling and the wind was blowing, and the digital traffic signs were telling us all kinds of things that we didn’t want to hear about! So, Roy put chains on the car, his first experience with chains. Once he got them in place, we waited a good hour or so for the crazy chainless cars to be towed out of their logjam mess ahead of us up the mountain. The scenery was breathtaking, but we were thankful to get to the other side of the Cascades, I can tell you!
