Rock slide on the pass!

today Roy and I were driving out to Sqwimm... out at the mouth on the Hood canal... north end of the olympic penninsula. we left at 10AM to descover that I-90 was closed due to a rock slide! 3 girls on their was home from the gordge were killed... We had to bo back around and up to Steven's pass. which was a great scenic drive, but took us 8 hours to go around due to the large volume of traffic on the road. It turns out that when snoqualmie pass is shut down, half of the state of washington goes into gridlock... but I guess that it didn't help to have weekend traffic heading back into seattle as well as traffic from rodeo weekend and a concert at the gordge. I got to witness the first time that roy saw his brother and sister in years... and it was an enjoyable time for all.
