A Break in the Weather

Last night's weather forecast for Norden (my proxy for Donner Summit) was for 10cm of snow and snow falling throughout the day. This morning, the revised forecast is for little or no snow, and the chain controls over I-80 have been lifted. Big rigs are still being screened for chains (meaning they won't let them through unless they are carrying them), but that doesn't apply to me, and as long as I take it fairly carefully (which is to say not drive like I'm an ice racer), the snow tires on the Rolling Stone should be sufficient as long as there's no new snow. So I'm off on a new assault on Donner this morning, via Lodi and Sacramento.
