This is our sidewalk to our front door, and underneath that snow drift is a bench and two chairs on a little patio type spot.
I had a bouquet of flowers that was dying, and we were leaving, so I planted them on top of the snow drift!
Ernie has the truck warmed up and backed out, and is getting ready to hook up to the trailer.  Wish him luck!
Gotta crank up the jacks and shovel a bit around the wheels, but soon............
here he is, out in the street already!  No problem!
Hopefully this parking spot will be melted a bit when we return!
As we were leaving town on a snow covered bumpy road, I snapped a picture of the temperature.
There were snow drifts in Iowa....
some pretty impressive ones at that.
And then we arrived in Omaha, where they had a blizzard yesterday.
Couldn't prove it by me!  Looks about like Minnesota did after the first little snow in November! 

We had dry roads and sunshine the whole way today.  Can't ask for more than that on our first day out!

I know you are glad to get out of all of that snow. I worry so much about my daughter up there in K.C. battling those snowy highways. I'm ready for them to come south! Hope you find Arizona nice and warm.

woo hoo!!
Drive On!! I am so envious... I have 2 weeks and 2 days to go until I leave for FLORIDA! And I do not get to stay nearly as long as you will be in Arizona... sigh...
Nevertheless...Gulf of Mexico, here I come!

I can't believe how good the roads look for having had the awful storm that they did. Here's hoping that continues for the remainder of your trip. I'll have to live vicariously through you as I'm stuck here.
