About halfway through Iowa we found snow. It was pretty. The further west we went the colder it got.
The struts need to be replaced. Crap!! That's all we need. They didn't have the parts so we headed on to Salt Lake. Bailee called ahead to find a place close to our hotel that could do the work.
Brian, in all his wisdom, booked us a hotel close to Temple Square. He knew I wanted to see the lights. The tire store was about a mile from the hotel. Temple Square was about the same. As soon as we got in town we dropped the car off and we walked to our hotel, with luggage. It wasn't too bad. It was cold but we knew it was only a mile.
After we warmed up we found a place for dinner and we set off walking, then Temple Square. It was beautiful!!
We had the best tasting hot chocolate for our walk back to our hotel, white chocolate peppermint! Yum!!
Tuesday morning the car was finished at 10:30. We had a relaxing morning at the hotel. On our walk back to pick up the car it was snowing. Bailee loved it! Bailee dropped me off at the airport at noon and she headed to Idaho. She was so excited to see Brooke.
With her taking her car to school it seems more real that she's on her own. I hope not completely yet. I hope she still comes home next fall and winter. We will miss her.
