North Carolina Rain
So we made it to Asheville North Carolina. There's light rain now, but it's supposed to really start coming down. There are local flash flood watches. Glad we don't plan on driving very far the next few days.
We did over 800 miles since we left Missouri. One night we just pulled into a truck stop. The next night we connect with my wife's uncle and aunt in Tennessee. The last time we saw them was over 5 years ago when we happen to meet up in Texas. We had a great visit and they treated us well. Good food and good conversation.
Monday we met up with my daughter and her family. They are heading south and we are heading north. The plan is to all get together with friends in Asheville for dinner before they continue their journey.
I'm told things are still pretty frozen solid up north. The cross country ski trails by my house still have 100% coverage. They tell me the frost went down past 6 feet this winter. Quite a few people are still without water.
Can't wait to get back . . . .well, I can wait a little. It will be a slow trip north.
