Yes, I know, so dramatic! But every trip over this road is harrowing (to me) at this time of year. I haven’t driven on the road in two weeks, not since the most recent seemingly neverending snow started. It’s been covered by a foot of snow for two weeks. The snow is melting, in some parts of the road–and the creeks in the road are high as a result. The river–the only access out to a hard road without going over two miles on our dirt/rock road–is high, too. That means it’s the road or nothing if you want out. High creeks, slippery mud, slushy snow, and patchy ice. Some parts of the road that don’t get any sun are still snow-covered. (Steep drop-offs to the side of the narrow road and no guard rails are an extra bonus.)
I made it out yesterday, but more snow is on the way……..
