The llamas don't care, they're water proof. It's me. I can drive in the snow, but I really don't like to. The Valley floor is 4000ft and the snow is starting at 5000ft. Maybe I'll be alright. At work I drive a heavy duty Ford F250 with 4wd, but the stupid thing still has no traction.

Weight only if I'm carrying a palette of maps or newspapers. Tomorrow should be an all computer day... I hope.

Llamas can go anywhere. I can get them in places a horse can't go.

It may have started at 5000 feet but it went below 4000.

It was snowing pretty good in the Valley, and all the way down to Arch Rock, around 4:30pm.
