We Beat the Snow

The forecast for the Midwest was daunting--snow, sleet,rain and more snow. At 4:30 yesterday afternoon I was still doing last minute laundry and packing when Denny said, "why don't we leave tonight and drive all night to see if we can beat the snowstorm?" And that's what we did. We were on the road by 6:30, popped an audio book CD in the car player and off we went. Friday night traffic in Atlanta at 8:30PM was bearable and there were no traffic back ups or problems. By the time we hit Kentucky at 1AM there were almost no vehicles on the road and there was only a spritz or two of raindrops. We rolled into my mother's driveway at 4:30AM, tossed the cat, her litter box and food into the house and fell into bed.

Naturally, since Patches had slept almost the entire ten hours of traveling and in a different house all she wanted to do was explore and cry. And cry. And cry. I think Denny and I got a total of one hour's sleep before I got up at 7AM to feed the idiot child. As soon as I stepped into the shower the cat crawled under our bed and fell asleep. ARRRGGGHHHH. I think she's doing a wise thing and I think Denny and I are going to try a little cat nap ourselves.

By the way, the snow started at 8AM and there's well over an inch of snow on the ground and it shows no sign of stopping (I think there's a song in there). For once, we made the right decision.
