I am told that it is a snow emergency and they have 2 feet of snow on the ground. They've been told that they may not be able to get in the front door because the drifts are up to 4 feet.
So they are stuck here for another day. divineserpent is currently on hold with the car rental place. It seems like everyone is trying to extend their car rentals.
Ah, yes... now I remember why I moved to California ;)
