But we are safe

The important thing is, we are safe. There are 1,000 ways this could have been devastating, and somehow, we were fortunate enough that it is only inconvenient. The frame on our trailer failed. We spent much of the fall in Minnesota and Wisconsin while our trailer was stored in Washington state. We returned to move it to Southern California as the weather got colder.
