Light blogging today as we are leaving Illinois to return home to North Carolina. In a reversal of the usual sequence of events, we’ll be coming from an area with light snow to an area with heavy snow.
It will be good to returning to a somewhat free state. I wonder if Illinois declares statewide states of emergency over a little bit of snow. Somehow, I doubt it.
UPDATE: Home safe and sound. Most of the trip was uneventful with clean, dry roads. That is, until we hit the Pigeon River Gorge on Interstate 40 at the NC-TN state line. It took us at least an hour to travel 20 miles because there was only one lane open. If the left lane had been plowed and salted, it certainly didn’t look like it.
