Trapped in Flag?

I did a 12-hour drive today. I made it from San Jose all the way to just west of Flagstaff. This is the most miles I have put between myself and the FC hotel on the Monday after the con. It was an easy drive until I got to Kingman when I started running into snow showers. The road wasn't bad but the visibility went to shit. A few miles later it would clear up. By the time I got to Williams, however, things really went to Hell. The road was snow-covered and it was pretty much a single track. Passing was possible if you were careful.

I decided to stop for the night at a motel that Kitty and I stopped at on the way to the con. They comped us a room/night because our toilet was busted. Well, I pull into the motel and there is a sign on the door that says they are closed because of a fire. WTF?!? I go inside and the same manager that gave us the room is working the desk. He says that since the weather is so shitty he would give me a room if he could find one that was not damaged by fire or water. He found ONE! Whoot! So I have heat, water, and electricity, but not much else. Who needs more?!? I heard that I-40 may be closed due to snow, so hopefully I'll be able to get the heck out of here tomorrow. Stay tuned!
