Driving Through The Snowy Mountains, Reno

THE DAY WE CHECKED OUT, THE WEATHER WAS VERY THREATENING... According to the weather forecast in Reno, there would be heavy rain and snow up on the mountains and the road leading up might be closed.  Oh dear... we were very worried because we need to get back to Sacramento on that particular day, by hook or by crook.  Anyway, we took the chance... we checked out and started our journey around 11am.

Yes, it was raining in Reno and halfway up, the rain became heavier.... we made a detour back to town.  Though we were using a four wheeled drive, my BIL wanted to install some chain tires just in case of the heavy snow.  Unfortunately the shop did not have the size of the car's tires... leaving no choice, we continued driving back to the mountains again, praying that the snow would not deter us from going through that stretch......
The road leading up to the mountains..... 
Raining? Snowing?  They looked so soft...
Thank God it was not heavy as reported on radio....
Still visible... Thank God... 
Imagine... just two days ago, everything was so Green...
And just two days later, everything turned White.....
Everything was in White... 
Though it is spring now... it still looks like Winter...
So this is how Christmas tree looks like in real.....
This stretch of road took more than an hour....
One hour of admiring the snow....
The whole stretch was only White and Black.... 
I was awe stuck... 
First time in history, I experienced driving through the snow... regardless.... 
Finally we arrived at the other side of the mountain... 
We have overcame the "danger" part....
And the rain turned into ice... just in front of our eyes...
Bye Bye Snow...
A very memorable beautiful experience indeed.....

  2. Gosh! That is a dangerous drive up the mountain. What an adventure. But worth the experience.

    Yes. Install chain tires would be visible choice when go up the slippery snowy mountain. Hope your BIL gets to install in the next round you guys going there again.

  3. PTL that the snow did not turn heavy and all of you got back safely. Must have been quite an experience to see all the snow and the world in black and white.

  6. The scenery of those snow coated trees is stunning! I hope to be able to experience this one day (without the danger, of course).

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
