I got in around 9 p.m. and stayed at the Best Western Miner's Inn. It was a very nice place to stay.
I woke to lots and lots of snow and decided to give Pat a call so I could meet her. She is so generous with her time and knowledge. Pat has been a member of Socks For Soldiers (SFS) since November 2006.
Pat came over and we went to get a bite to eat at Grandma's Restaurant. I wanted to make sure I ate there again. It's a great place to eat!
Pat then drove me to an auto parts store so I could purchase some chains for my truck. The news was that you were required to have chains and/or snow tires with you in order to drive through the pass. From there, she gave me the grand tour of Yreka. We 'Oohed and Ahhd' at the beautiful old homes.
Then Pat gave a call to a friend of hers [Norma], giving her only a few minutes to get ready, asking if she would like to knit with us.
It was so nice to go to my motel room and knit! We knit for an hour or so.........and I feel so bad that I didn't get a picture of them! I have come to realize, Pat would give you the shirt off her back.
This is a picture of Norma's house.
I-5 was closed from noon until 5 p.m. I didn't want to drive in the dark so I stayed another night.
This is what it looked like, from my motel door, the next day.
My door faced East and I needed to drive North, or left of this picture.
