We finally made it to Oregon. It took us 12 hours, 6 more than usual to get to my brother's house in Oregon. We survived a blizzard and three traffic accidents where we were completely stopped for over an hour each. Finally after 12.5 hours in the car, we get to my brother's two mile long ice covered driveway, only to make it part way up. Quite a memorable road trip and it doesn't end there. Since we got here, we've had two power outages which wouldn't be a big deal if the toilet and the coffee maker would work. :-) At least we're all together and it's almost Christmas. Here's a picture from my brother's front deck.
It's a few days before Christmas and I'm sure there is some last minute scrambling but if you have time for a nice breakfast, here's a good homemade pancake recipe that's pretty easy and you probably have all this on hand.
