On The Road
Reece and I are on the road, enjoying our little adventure south to Myrtle Beach. The plan was to leave on Wednesday morning, but after hearing the forecast of a storm heading along the route we would be traveling we packed up Tuesday afternoon and hit the road.
We drove five hours on Tuesday to Cortland, New York where we stayed overnight. We awoke to grey skies, but nothing more on Wednesday morning. I was feeling confident we were ahead of the game and would be far enough south when the storm hit. My confidence was soon shattered. We hit Virginia and instead of missing the storm, drove right on through it.
I counted eight tractor trailers in the ditch. I stopped counting cars that had spun out. There were trees blocking lanes along interstate 64 making it like a maze to get through. It was a tough, stressful drive taking us a little longer than expected but we made it to our next stop and were happy to get in our hotel room, eat dinner and crash.
I am hoping our drive today is much less eventful.
