An Odd Thanksgiving

My daughter wanted to see snow. So with an arctic storm hitting the Sierra, up we went. I’m glad I put on the wheels with snow tires (Blizzak’s) the night prior (at 01:00 AM in cold rain), because (got up at 4:45 AM) Hwy 88 closed not long after we got thru, and those Blizzak’s hook up super nice on snow and ice.

Anyway, no turkey or mashed spuds on Turkey Day but Oreos and a nice triple cream brie filled in some corners.

Last night was 14°F but still warm and cozy—it’s all about the right gear. Tonight... well, it’s 7°F now and all my 1-gallon water bottles are solid ice. I kept one 1-gallon in the car to stay liquid, along with other stuff (fresh fruit and similar). A cooler helps (it’s a “warmer” when ice is a lot warmer than ambient!). White bunnies run around here and there. The full moon makes things bright, we were treated to an awesome vertical shaft of light through some cloud cover. The snow is not deep at all in the White Mountains and access is easy all the way to Patriarch Grove (with 4WD strongly advised for traction).
