What a sneak attack! Last night we drove to the airport in SLC to pick up my sister Sarah. Her and two friends are staying at the Peruvian Lodge Tuesday and Wednesday night. Dang did they time it right. We were “suppose to get a few inches in the canyons but no biggie on your arrival,” I said. Yep. No biggie. Ha.
When we left Heber valley it was just starting to snow and roads were wet only (8pm). We picked them up and after grabbing a few Burritos, to go, we started back east over Parley’s Canyon. This is where the knuckles started to turn white. Once we got above the East Canyon exit ramp it was carnage. Semis stuck, two wheel drive cars flailing soon to be stuck as well, and poor bastards off in the median. Plows were no where to be seen. This sucker caught everyone off guard. The conditions deteriorated all the way to our house with the top of I-40 between Park City and Heber being the worst of it. We pulled in to our drive way at Timberlakes 12:30am. A regularly one hour drive took 2.5.
