OK, I have to admit I'm a little scared. During the last week while working at the parts and service counter, I fielded two calls from RVers asking about chains.
The first storm in a series of three over the next few days just arrived here with high wind warnings (100 mph wind gusts already over the passes at Lake Tahoe), forecasts of 20-60 mph along the coast, flooding in low-lying areas (with the offer of free sandbags), and 5-10 feet of snow at the upper elevations (over 5000 feet).
Early this morning, I had my propane filled, used the dump station, filled the water tank, drove to the laundromat and did my laundry. I returned, made a pot of coffee and prepared to hunker down for the remainder of my two days off. The first of the storms was supposed to arrive this afternoon and at 11:59, the first raindrops fell.
Um--why would you want to put chains on your RV and travel in a high profile vehicle through gusting winds in bad weather when the highway patrol is warning that I-80 will probably be closed to everyone?
Am I alone in seeing this as foolish?
