I am not amused!
Best laid plans and all that. Frankie has taken a few days of vacation so that we can go home to see Mom. Mother Nature has decided she doesn’t want to co-operate.
The plan is for us to leave town when Frankie gets off work Monday afternoon. I’m hoping the weather guessers are wrong but it looks as if we’ll be following a snow plow for the first 75 miles. Then again, we may not even get out of town until Tuesday!
While we’re on the western ridge of the New River Valley and usually get more severe winter weather, Roanoke is in the bottom of another valley and it looks like road conditions there should be much better than what we’re expecting
The further east we travel the better the forecast. The trick will be getting far enough east to take advantage of the better weather.
I like the “mostly sunny” in the forecast for Petersburg on Monday and that 37°F will feel almost warm after what we’ve been dealing with!
Not seeing the dreaded S word in the forecasts for the eastern part of the state is most welcome…….if it holds true. With my luck the winter weather will follow us all the way home! Once we make it home I won’t even bother looking at the online forecasts……..until it’s time to return, that is.
As always, whether or not I’ll be posting while we’re away depends on Mom’s neighbors. If one of them is kind enough to have an unsecured Wi-Fi network I will be posting. If not, I’ll have several blogs ready to upload when we get back. If y’all don’t hear from us for the next week behave yourselves and know that we’re thinking of you.
Now, to dig out the luggage and start packing!
