Travelling through Summer, Fall and Winter in 10 Days
In November I decided to take a trip south to Sedona - just for the heck of it. The fall weather was warm and roads were clear all the way down and half way back. Karen warned me to hunker down in Vegas for a week because there was a storm front coming in. At 80° above with clear skies and dry roads, it just didn't seem like a problem. Then I hit Winter Storm Brutus - head on. I was stuck in Beaver, Utah for a couple of days and spent two days from there driving through the worst road conditions I have ever experienced. In hindsight, Vegas would have been more fun and certainly warmer. I know better than to ignore what Karen says about the weather.
Winter Storm Brutus formed on November 8. Brutus brought blizzard conditions from the Sierra to the Rockies. The storm's greatest impacts were to the Northern Plains, where moderate blizzard conditions occurred. The top snow total from Brutus was 25".
