My goal was to leave Highland for Logan at 8am. Even though the sealing for Rebecca and Chris was at noon, I did not want to be late. So, when I went to load stuff in the car, there was about 3.5 inches of snow on the ground already. By the time I got the car loaded, it was about 4 inches.
Rebecca called during this time. She was a little miffed that certain family members were calling her trying to get her to change her plans because of the weather. So, both Rebecca and I made some phone calls to discover the storm was quite localized to the Utah Valley and did not extend into Salt Lake or points north.
We picked up Amber, but just before that, my ex-wife called asking if her and her husband could hitch a ride with us.
Who does that?
We had to tell her no because we already had 3 passengers in a 4 passenger sub-compact. (By the way, this Nissan we rented was the worst car I have ever driven. What a death trap. I’ll never rent one again.) It is a good thing we didn’t try to squeeze them in because Jennifer called and needed a ride.
The 4 of us were finally Logan bound around 9:40am. Once we passed Salt Lake City, there was hardly any snow falling. By the time we made it to Willard Bay, the ground did not have any snow. By the time we got the Brigham City, the skies were starting to clear.
We made it there on time, and all went smoothly for the sealing. It was so nice to see Rebecca and Chris and Zoe sealed.
We had lunch at a Mexican Restaurant in Logan. (Not the greatest food. And, I had way too much Mexican food this trip.)
We took Amber back to her work, and then Jennifer to her in-laws. We let the kids open their presents from us, and visited for a bit with them.
While I was there, Kathy and I talked by phone. I had to provide the Reader’s Digest version of the trip. She was quite appalled at some of the antics that went on. Rebecca got a kick out of some of her comments about what she would have done had she been there. We had a good laugh.
We had some time before having to be to the airport. I drove Elizabethe up and around the Draper Temple. We looked at the castle-like homes up there.
We then stopped at Kneader’s for a quick snack, and then on to the airport.
When we got to SLC, we discovered the check in was closed for their break. So, we had to sit around for an hour and a half waiting. It went quickly. Before long, we were on our way back home.
