The drive from Redding, California, over the mountains and down into the valley with Portland, Salen, Eugene Oregon was fine. But from there it got sort of tricky. Hitting with 70 mph winds tonight here on the coast and nasty rain. I came in over the coast range through it.
Tiring drive. White snow along the road, heavy fog, hard rain, and wind. Places I couldn’t see anything, let alone the road. Not fun.
But I made it.
So I managed to get the workshop assignments done tonight and will be back at everything full tomorrow and will do a wrap-up on the travel book here.
But tonight the power is flickering, the wind is rocking the house, and I figure it’s better to sleep through the power being out.
I am home fine. Great trip. Wrote a novel and a nonfiction writing book and played poker and spent a ton of time visiting with friends and playing some blackjack and eating too much.
Better stop typing while I still have power. Night.
