We hit the road just after Noon during the snowstorm Thursday. It took us 2 hours to get from Woodbury to Rogers. Then it took us another 12 hours to get to Billings, Montana. Treb napped briefly, while super-trouper Jordan was wide awake in the back watching DVD's and playing PSP. We finally crashed at the Super8 in Billings @ 3AM.
Driving conditions varied. Hard packed ice/snow all the way to Fargo. Lots of wind lead to drifting snow in ND and MT. The roads would be clear, then all of a sudden we would hit snow across the road. No close calls really, just kept me on my feet. We saw lots of cars and trucks in the ditch, including a snow plow in ND. At about midnight, we saw a jackknifed semi eastbound, with stopped traffic behind. Sucks to be them.
The plan is to hit Bridger Bowl for a half day Friday, stay in Bozeman Friday night, and then head to Big Sky on Sat AM.
Sounds like MSP continued to get hammered last night. I-90 was closed in South Dakota yesterday too. Thankfully I-94 didn't get hit as bad. A shout goes out to Painman and Johnny B for getting Treb and I into the Horribly Hilly 200K. Word is it filled up already.
