After many hours of windy driving, sometimes with sleet or snow flakes, finally I saw some blue ahead, was it sky or mountains? I left early to avoid some bad weather (I think it was named Bruce up north.)
I'd driven this journey in more level mountains of Kentucky rather than West Virginia and Virginia. Tennessee and North Carolina have mountains to say welcome home...after driving through them from Knoxville to Asheville!
And sunshine with some leaves still showing color!
Two tunnels, and then a few more miles and I was home again. The only problem from being away for a week was that the electricity must have been off for a while because...the fish all died. Thank heavens it's on now, and now I'm putting on the rubber gloves and sloshing out some really yucky stuff.
