Nemo and Kat - I'm disappointed in the turn of events.

The Splitcoast crew made it in today - my flight was delayed a few minutes, but I was lucky. All of the flights out of Phoenix (my layover) after mine were canceled for weather.

Set up was fun. The Lizzie Anne girls are right next to the SCS booth. Sandy at Crafty Secrets is a few doors down. The Unity peeps were in the house with their Ippity booth. Taylored Expressions is one aisle over and several booths down from us. All of the booths look great!

For any of you who went to Orlando SuperShow - there are *so* many more vendors at this show. Very nice variety, and the center is almost full. I hope I can get out of the booth for a few minutes.

Can't wait til tomorrow.
I'm crossing my fingers that the worst of the weather is past us now and I hope all of you traveling from afar have safe trips! I only have an hour or so drive and will leave plenty of time in the a.m.

Ah! Glad to hear you made it there safely - You WERE lucky to get that last flight! I'm hoping good weather is with Cami and I tomorrow!!

They're tied into the CHP database. You can also call 1-800.427.7623 for current highway conditions.

Good luck. I think the suggestions to go down 101 are sound...the Grapevine is very likely to be closed by later today and who knows how long it will stay that way. I've seen it closed for two-three days at a time. Right now (5:45 am), the snow is sticking to the ground, and since they've already been closing it periodically - or pacing traffic - it wouldn't surprise me if they don't close it soon.

For us in the Central Valley, heading over to the coast to catch the 101 adds another two hours (at least) to the drive and those roads from our area tend to flood, so we'll just have to play it by ear. As excited as I've been over going to CHA for the first time, I'm trying to face the fact that we just might not make it this year.

Keeping my fingers crossed.....
Thanks so much! I'll check it out ...

Lori: Thanks for commiseraring with us!

Wendy: The Grapevine is open this morning....it's raining, but Cal Trans seems to be keeping up with it, so you might luck out!!

My friends and I just can't bring ourselves to give up this quickly, so we're going to try the Ridge Route (Grapevine) early tomorrow morning. Our original plans were to head down tonight, but we figure if we leave EARLY tomorrow morning, at least we'll have daylight in our favor by the time we reach the mountains. REALLY hoping to see all of you there!! Can't wait to check in with the SCS booth!!

Good luck to everyone else traveling today,
Kat

Girls, I'm at 3300 feet and we have SEVERAL (6+) inches of snow and it is still coming down....BE CAREFUL. Keep updated on the weather/roads 'cause it is looking like things could get closed quickly!

Good morning ladies! I'm about 20 minutes from heading out the door to pick up some friends and head over to CHA!! It's currently raining in Anaheim and will be doing so all day. Temps will be in the low 50s. Be very CAREFUL driving out there. Most all roads are flooded. Remember, don't be in too much of a rush - the crafts will be there no matter what time you arrive! I hope to see you all there soon!!!

I just finished walking Riley, it went from cloudy with spots of clear sky peeking through, to a full blown ominous black cloud with hail and a rainbow preceding a downpour! For me, the rainbow was the perfect ending to my walk, even though I got soaked at the end.

I'm heading out the door momentarily, hoping for a somewhat dry drive although it's not looking good at the moment.

Sniff, sniff. It's STILL snowing at my house. I can't get out! What if I can't make the drive tomorrow?! I'm panicking over here (not to mention freezing as we have had no power all day)

We're on our way!! =) We'll be leaving Bako in about 30 minutes...hoping to get over the summit before it gets too cold and windy. =) We're meeting up with the final person in our group tomorrow morning when she arrives in town.

Starla: SO SORRY you're snowed in. I hope you can dig out by tomorrow...

CHA - here we come!!

Smile Can't wait either!

I have been following this thread for awhile. I'm driving in tomorrow from Yucca Valley area. I can't wait!! I was in OC yesterday for a conference and almost drown! I take it the snowed in people are in Big Bear. This is not good planning on Mother Nature's part! It sounds like EVERYONE is going to this show!

Crossing my fingers Kathy!! It is STILL snowing here...but it is borderline rain...(pouring down the hill)....I'm going to program you number now in my phone in case we lose power AGAIN (off all day until about 4 pm....only good thing with the cold everything stayed frozen/cold!!)...I'll be playing it by ear....

hoping that I'll dig soon enough to go out even if I'm later than the doors opening!!

Val! I have seen you from afar a few times so far, but I'm always in the middle of something and can't get over to you! I'm hoping to see you before the show ends so I can introduce myself.

Hugs!!!

LJ it was great meeting you and Yoorah and everyone! Lori Craig and Jenn Balcer great meeting you guys! I was glad to meet Daven too - he is one cool dude I got to meet so many people from SCS and vendors in person, I think I liked that the best!
