Happy Dance

i had to go to Spokane (100 miles away) today for some dr apts. my mom went with me because she had an apt as well. we left at 5:45am & it was snowing when we left. our plan was to make the trip there go to the apts & get home because of the snow storm.
this is in Colfax about 1/2 way there, still snowing & snow berms in the middle of the road. we made it to Spokane & the dr apts all went well. i don't have to go back for 3 months!!!! for me, that is a big deal because for awhile i was seeing them every 2 to 4 weeks. we grabbed some lunch at a drive-thru & headed for home.
we get to Colfax & this is what we see. not sure what was going on but we got detoured.
this is why we got detoured. a business on main street was on fire. major bummer for that business. once through Colfax i knew that the worse part of the drive was yet ahead of us.
the winds were blowing like crazy across the Palouse. this shot was taken between Pullman & Colton. more then likely they will close the road tonight because the the snow & wind.
lastly, i couldn't resist this pic. just outside of Uniontown we came upon a taxi going about 30mph & sometimes smack-dab in the middle of the road. my mom & i could not figure out what a taxi was doing out there & there was no passenger. my mom told me that my Great Auntie Grace use to call the taxi company & have them go to the liquor store for her & bring her purchase to her house. so, we thought maybe someone needed a liquor store run......
********
