Trip to Sacramento, Snow and Rainbow

WOW, Here we are again, on the road....Quiet unexpectedly, but having a very interesting trip.
We left early Saturday morning and drove about 10 hours, we have to be in Sacramento, Ca. by Wednesday, so have to make a lot of miles each day.Saturday we traveled about 725 miles, it was been a long day. Sunday was another 700+ miles, spent the night in Kerrville, New Mexico.
About 4 am, DH woke up to the sound of wind howling, looked out the window and saw blinding SNOW, he did let me sleep until 5 am, and got me up,we left about a terrible snowstorm. He called his boss to let him know what situation we were in, also to let him knowthat our cell phone kept cutting off, so they may not be able to get in touch with us. I also called our daughter to tell her of our situation.She immediately turned on her TV, to the weather channel. Informed us if we could just get to Tucson, Ar. that we should run out of bad weather. That was a comforting statement, only thing was we had about 125 miles to travel before we got to Tucson.The pictures of the snow in the dark is what we saw when we got outside to the truck. The other snow pics were made along the way. It was a beautiful snow. Wish I had been sitting somewhere that I could have enjoyed it....***VBS*** Obviously we made it to our destination. All is well....
What are we doing headed to Sacremento???Well, we are hauling the trailer for Lance Armstrong Store. We will follow him on his ride through California....He is supposed to ride about 700 miles,over the course of 8 days, stopping in a lot of different towns along the way. If the Tour of California is coming your way, come out and support your favorite rider. I am not working, just along to be with my DH,and DH will only work later in the evenings, he will move the trailer in the evenings to the next destination.
The most beautiful rainbow I have ever saw greeted us to the Sacramento Area I am not sure exactly where we were, but the rainbow was awesome. I hope those of you that live in this area got to see it.... *** BEAUTIFUL***
The last picture is of our Great Grandson, sitting on my lap opening my Christmas gift...He is so cute and such a sweet baby. Now he will soon be the BIG Brother....WOW, we are all very excited.I hope I will be home when the new one arrives. MAYBE****
I will have to delay sending out the gifty for the magazine give away, as we are on the road, but I will send it as soon as possible. I will not forget, I promise.
I hope you ladies are quilting lots of memories and staying warm. It is pretty cold here and there is another storm headed this way BBBBRRRRRR.

Bobbin and Christian
