My guys are missing. Make that two of my guys and my brand new babysitter. They headed up to The Summit at Snoqualmie Pass to snowboard only hours after the pass reopened following reported avalanches, and two hours after they arrived, the highway closed again with more avalanches.
Fortunately, my crew of three (Surfer Ty, son Ty and Summer the new sitter) aren’t trapped in one of the cars in the snow, but safely tucked into a parking lot at The Lodge at the Summit, but they won’t be home anytime soon. In fact, there’s talk that the road won’t be open again until nearly noon tomorrow so they could be arriving here mid-day tomorrow. Or later.
I’m really glad they’re safe and I’m working hard at my end to get them a lodge hotel room so they don’t have to sleep in the car, or on the lodge floor, but I do wish I had my car. I’ve doctors appointments in the morning and I need shots tonight and it’s just odd to feel this way….kind of helpless, useless. And yet, at the same time, its sort of an adventure for everyone involved. New babysitter Summer is getting to know my Tys very well, and my Tys are getting some serious bonding time, too.
Since Sinclair has agreed to come over tonight to give me my evening shots, all I need now is a ride to the doctor’s in the morning.
And to get those crazy adrenaline junkie snowboarders home.
