We're going to be on the road to Thunderhill in less than 24 hours and there's currently 12" of snow on the ground. Getting to California shouldn't be too difficult, returning to a city that's under a mile of ice and overrun with marauding hordes of Cro-magnon cannibals and herds of mastodon is going to suck though.
There's a frozen raccoon under there somewhere. I know it.
Shannon was very nearly an avalanche casualty, fortunately there was a St. Bernard on hand to dig her out.
