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.....

  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.

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing....

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
