On The Road Again
On Friday night I drove to Bloomington, IN from Cincinnati to spend the weekend with our son. Half way through the (normally) 2 1/2 hour trip, the heavens opened up and there was lightning, thunder, and torrential rains. That was OK, I was in a heavy car, and the traffic was light, but all of a sudden the traffic came to a halt. As we inched along, I couldn't see what was going on up ahead, as it was obvious, it was way ahead of where I was. Then it happened..the traffic narrowed to one lane and in the midst of this torrential downpour I'm driving in 4-inches of hail that had fallen...like driving in icy snow, with rain pouring down---
the ruts in this hail had this California girl dreaming of the days in Boston when the plows didn't get out to the streets for days. A 2 1/2 hour trip took 4 hours, but I'm safe and have spent the weekend with Ryan watching basketball. My bracket it totally destroyed, but I love March and all the madness.
