All packed and nowhere to go

They closed I-70!
Too windy. Gusts have been over 100mph all day long.
So no Moab Red Hot 50K for me!
I wasn't even angry, but I am bummed.

This morning, the news showed a sheriff officer with blood on his neck. The wind shattered two of his windows. The flying glass put a bunch of little cuts on his neck.

This photo is at Beaver Brook/Floyd Hill. It was closed all the way to Vail.
I'm a very lucky guy, so I figured I'd just drive as far as I could and maybe (maybe [maybe]) they'd open the road by the time I got there. No luck on that.
There have been dozens of flipped-over trucks and cars, and lots of broken windows. I talked to a contractor at lunch who said a stack of plywood got dealt-out like an invisible giant dealing cards.

I guess it's a good thing I hadn't mailed in my registration, huh?
