- We spent most of Saturday listening to the Fox News coverage of the avalanche on XM - and talking back to the anchors as they mangled the location of the slide as well as the details of what had happened and general information about avalanches. It was very good to hear that no one was killed.
- We chose to return via I-40 (reported for a while on Saturday as the location of the avalanche, by the way) and I-25, since snow was forecast for Vail Pass over the weekend. This was mostly a good choice, but we had a scare on Sunday. Just south of Santa Fe, we saw a highway warning sign: "I-25 CLOSED AT COLORADO BORDER. SEEK LODGING". Several phone calls later (in-laws with computers, New Mexico Road Conditions, and Colorado Road Conditions), we figured out that the sign was a little out of date and everything was open. High winds between Trinidad and Colorado Springs, though.
We're home now. I think it's probably about time to take the Christmas decorations down. And there's another blizzard forecast for this weekend, I hear. Woo hoo.
