Un Cachito de la vida - A little piece of Cameron's life

It just keeps coming. Northern Utah got pounded last night, but some places were certainly worse than others. In fact, north of a point called "The Point of the Mountain" which separates Salt Lake and Utah counties, things weren't too bad. I went and picked up a friend and then headed down to Provo (in Utah County). I didn't get too far. In about 10 minutes the freeway had turned into a parking lot due to two jackknifed semis. So I took some side roads, which again, I didn't think were all that bad, until I got to SR92, a highway just on the other side of the Point. There I encountered winds blowing snow at 60-70 mph. Not realizing the highway had been closed, I started driving along with near-zero visibility, just trying to watch the lights in front of me. I had no idea where on the road I was and when I finally turned around due to an impass, I found myself on the left side of the road instead of the right with my front end off the road in deep snow. With the help of another good samaritan, I was able to push the car out and go back home (very slowly), dodging cars (including some very expensive ones) that had just been abandoned. It was seriously crazy. KSL has some coverage of it here, mentioning the busses full of kids that were stranded on the same highway where I was.

Cameron - I know you bought snowboarding gear, but you haven't seem to caught onto the fact that if there is a huge storm then you take the next day off and go riding! I know you weren't there, cause I was up riding 12" of POW and it was blue skies and sunny.Of course you know what they say, "There's no friends on a powder day".

Jason, I've actually thought about calling you to go sometime AND and I even picked up a discount pass for night-boarding at Brighton sometime this season that I still need to use. Let me know if you want to go sometime. I was thinking of maybe using it Saturday.
