We left Seattle about 12:30pm today and everything was going pretty smoothly. We'd filled up 34 gallons of diesel for $60 ( thanks Fred Meyer points ) and had a book on tape. We got to Echo, Oregon and started seeing snow. And by the time we reached Pendleton, chains were required for all vehicles towing. So it's 11pm and we're still pulled over with the long haulers until the chain restrictions are lifted or until the stores open. But it's okay because we have snacks. And kitten only peed on one blanket.
