The drive was great for the first 15 min's, but as I left Kamloops and got higher into the mountains, the snow started to fall. It was coming down pretty damn good. BUT, highways had already been through once and it was 07:00ish. Alberta, take note. Snow got heavier, but once at some of the peaks, it cleared up a bit. Thought woohoo, should be smooth sailing, but alas, nope! Once on the decent, the rain started pouring like mad!

It was uneventful once by Hope, BC. Huge traffic jams in Vancouver with the new Port Mann bridge being built, so took an extra 1.5 hours to get to the ferry. Needless to say I was gonna miss the 10:30 sailing. When I pulled up to the gate the lady said "good news, the ferry is behind schedule so you'll make the 10:30". It was 10:50 - wahooooooo!!!

Well made it to mom and dad's with plenty of time to spare. Mom was out at the time for a Doc's appt, but dad was there. Whoa a bit tired to say the least. Sure has been 2 days of challenging driving. Yellowknife to Grande Prairie wasn't too bad, so had the one good day of driving.

Had a great visit with mom and dad and started my daughterly duties by cooking dinner. Was pretty beat so went to bed early and got up way too early, but was able to have coffee with dad while mom slept.

Sooooo great to see them both!!!
