It’s about 2:00pm Central Time and we’re just south of Birmingham, Alabama. It’s rainy, but warm outside and we’re still sporting our flip-flops.
Yesterday was awesome! Christmas is always wonderful and yesterday was no exception. We could write volumes and post 100 pictures! We had great times from first thing in the AM (6:00am) when the boys woke up to all of the goodies around the tree, to visits with family in Tampa (which really was so much fun at both stops), to a pretty nice night of driving. We made it to Tallahassee before it was time to hit the sack. A nice new Super Wal-Mart was our home for the night.
But no time to write about all of that because we need to get back on the road. Gotta change plans. We already changed plans once today when we decided to hop off I-10 early this morning in favor of some scenic back roads through the Florida Panhandle and Southern Alabama. I use the word scenic to say that there was a lot to see. The most interesting was the World Record holder of “Most Blow-Up Christmas Decorations in one yard” !
We were headed to Memphis and made it as far as Birmingham when we started to catch wind of some weather issues. Upon stopping to get some (not free) Wi-Fi at McDonald’s we were able to check the forecast for our intended path…to Memphis tonight, then West on I-40 tomorrow through Little Rock. Not a good plan.
