… and rain fell on the earth for forty days and nights. (Genesis 7:12)
Apart from a couple days of good weather while traveling in the Owens Valley, this winter trip along through the west proved to be the wettest of memory. Rain and snow accompanied me on the first days - I left Zion National Park only for the park to be closed the next day due to rain-induced washouts and flooding. Travel did not improve as I moved northward, with snow slowing travel on even the interstate highways. When it wasn’t raining or snowing, a thick overcast covered the western US. Not at all the weather I was hoping for – but you make the best with what you have. Though at times an ark would have been handy.
