Dan, Greg and I are now in Springfield, OH after driving for almost ten hours straight yesterday. We ran into some really heavy rain and fog, which slowed us down, but fortunately no snow. Yet.
Highlights from yesterday:
- The kittens made it clear they didn’t want us to leave (or that they were coming with us):
- Notes to self: We found several pre-existing notes to ourselves on our route yesterday through Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Ohio, such as the following:Duly noted, we stopped our self-engines. Then there was the rest stop bathroom that said “Self-Flush,” so we complied yet again. The creepiest part, though, was the self-portraits from long, long ago at Cracker Barrel.
- Dan, giving directions, told Greg to take a “sleft light,” which I giggled about all day long. All day.
Today, we head further north for Chicago and the snow belt – they got 8 inches the night before last, but the roads should be clear by today. We hope.
