Going home from Sierra Vista

Post by Norman Kling » Sun Feb 24, 2019 3:50 pm

Yesterday, I saw Kirby Pray pulling his car along interstate 8 toward San Diego, but he didn't see me. This got me to wondering whether everyone was able to get home safely from Sierra Vista. I know some of the roads were closed for periods of time and there were some icy conditions.

Left on Thursday morning to get ahead of the front that was coming in. Got home Saturday morning about two hours before the blizzard started. I was really glad we left when we did.

Those that left on Saturday left to clear roads, sunny skies and a desert covered with a couple inches of snow. Spoke with a couple from Missouri that got home Tuesday on clear dry roads. Sunny in Arizona today and 70.

We left Sunday for Tempe - clear and warm but saw this most of the way.

We had a great time! Thanks Joss, Richard and everyone else for making it a great event.

I drove the T home Thursday morning. I had a few sprinkles on the windshield just North of Sonoita. I used about 3 gallons of gas to make it home. Started raining overnight, then turned to snow about 7:30 and snowed until 4:00. About 6" of snow at my house.
I did have a good time there. Thanks to Joss and Susan along with Richard Held for putting on the tour.

From messages and emails I have received, everyone from the San Diego area got home safely. A couple of guys had medical issues but these were resolved. I got home just ahead of the storm that closed Interstate 8 near Campo.
I really enjoy the Sierra Vista area with roads and venues that are so perfect for our Ts, it only a shame that the weather didn’t cooperate. Anyhow we owe a debt of thanks to Joss, Richard and the rest of the crew for a well organized, enjoyable tour.
