We were stuck on I-80 just past Twin Bridges from around 7pm until sometime after 11pm. They were not allowing anyone to be able to go back towards Sacramento until sometime after 10pm. They told us that they were trying to open the roads again asap and ended up detouring everyone back to Colfax. We searched for motels from Colfax until Sacramento and couldn't find anything, by this time it was around 2am. Luckily we found a family's house we can stay at in Vacaville, ca. All this was due to 3 majpr accidents on I-80. CHP told us that a Safeway big rig fliped over when the idiot missed his exit and tried to still take it. Well, we took some cars with him when he fish tailed out of control and turned over. THey said there were 25 cars that were in accidents on I-80. What an experience.

We were stuck on Hwy 50 from a bit before 9pm until well past 12.30am, when a CHP car drove by telling of an avalanche that would take 3-6 more hours to clear. Although we were barely 30 miles from the south shore, we turned around and drove home.
Caltrans should do something about their radio transmissions on 1670 AM. They are impossible to receive all along Hwy 50. If the radio had said something and we had been able to receive it, it could have saved us 4 hours of wait.
