Arrived in Alamosa Safely

We are SOOOOOOO happy we decided to leave Coffeyville Monday instead of Tuesday!!! We traveled to La Juanta with Bill and Lesle then they broke off and drove north and were settled into the Air Force Academy Fam Camp by 2 pm. We drove over La Veta Pass and the snow was just beginning to fall. Driving west the roads were clear, but driving east was in frozen ice. We saw two accidents driving over....but we were OK.

We are staying at Day's Inn Motel as it gets too cold here in Alamosa to stay in the rv. The rv is parked at Jim's brothers garage out of town. We woke up this morning to the ground covered in snow.....the puppies aren't liking to go out in that mess.....and it is snowing as we speak. So it was very good we got here yesterday instead of today....the news just said there is chain law for traveling over La Veta and Wolf Creek Passes. We wouldn't have made it home coming in today as we definitely don't have tire chains with us.

So for all our friends out there ..... we arrived safely and are staying at a motel so we are warm and doing OK.

Remember, you are loved.


  1. We are sooooo glad that the two of you made it home safely. Have a wonderful Christmas with your family. God Bless you both.

  5. Post Script, re: The weather in Coffeyville Kansas where we had been working at The direct TV reciever is still set to recieve the local channels up there, and if I heard it right, the temperature is one degree and there is eight inches of snow on the ground !
