::in the tiny old nissan::

Huge revolving frame that goes on your wall and displays your digital photos. No more printing them out. PhotoVu.

So I get this frantic call from the hubs about 20 minutes ago.
"Hi Geenie, how's the day going? Cool. Well, we're on top of a snow covered mountain right now. Yes, it's pretty dangerous. I'm not sure if we'll be home tonight. It's getting really dangerous. I have to go so I can drive. Bye."


Safe and sound at home.
3 hours in snow between Valencia and Castaic.
At one point he pulled the pictures of us out of his wallet and stuck them on the visor.
He was getting worried.
More than 100 cars passed by.
Not one person stopped to help.
Journalists stopped to take pictures but didn't offer to give a ride or see if they needed anything at all
Battery kaput.
They only needed a jump as it turns out.
They could have died or at least lost fingers and toes.
Counting our blessings tonight (and buying extra jumper cables).

Hope by now your hub is safe and sound. Liked your advise - keeping eyes on Him - that is the Lord. Can't go wrong there - you are so right!

OMG - that is so weird.
People took photos, but nobody HELPED ?

Did he flag them, wave his arms about, look desperate ?
