Mark and I headed to the Island Park cabin on Friday. My sister Pam's family arrived about an hour later. The cabin was only 32 degrees inside and it took overnight to warm up. On Saturday I got up at 5:30am and left to drive to Idaho Falls to attend an Island Park Scout Camp Staff meeting. It was our first staff meeting and it was a good one. The roads in the valley were dry. It started raining at Ashton and as I drove up the hill in Mark's beloved truck it started to snow like crazy. The truck began to slide, did a 360 and hit the snowbank on the opposite side of the road. The truck wasn't drivable. So I stood on the side of the road in the snowstorm with 4 police officers waiting for the tow truck. They loaded our truck on a flat bed truck and drove me and the truck to Majestic Auto Body in Idaho Falls. It was snowing there too by the time we arrived. My son-in-law, Shaun picked me up. I was cold and miserable, my body ached. It was after 6pm when I arrived back at my home. Meanwhile Mark and Pam's family spent the day at the cabin.
