Let's just start by saying being able to get out of my driveway was the highlight of our road trip. After a 13 hour day of blowing snow, slippery roads and heavy traffic we landed 800 miles down the road in Clarksville TN only to find that the major interstate between Clarksville and Nashville was CLOSED!!! WHAT? The detour was going to navigate traffic through local villages and tiny backroads. As I stood there in the hotel lobby I imagined what THAT backup would look like as thousands of people tried to get to work in Nashville on Friday morning. We set a 3:00am wakeup call, hit the road by 3:30am and sailed through the detour. The balance of the trip provided a nice mix of fog and rain (thankfully no ice).
Oh well! We're here! Sunny and 89 degrees. Wearing flip flops and shorts and and honestly feeling sorry for those we left behind.
