Southern CA?

Craig and Ellen have already given some very good advice to all who are planning on driving to NCECA here. Just want to re-emphasize the need to allow for some
wiggle room on your itinerary if indeed we do get hit with a good storm.

Winter is still a fact in March in those high elevations, though spring has sprung in the Willamette valley and along the coast.

We travel north and south at this time of year frequently, but know that we might need to adjust a day or two, so as to time safe traveling through various problem mountain passes.

Here are my favorite on-line sites to check road conditions. Whether you're coming from Arizona, California or Montana, they will be most helpful, so add them to your "Favorites" list: (Oregon Department of Transportation's official website)

Hope that helps, and happy traveling!
