I can officially say that we aren’t leaving town for the rest of the year.
We made it home this afternoon. After getting little to no sleep, my husband and I set off around 7:20 this morning. Big mistake. Had we stuck around a little longer and really listened to the news reports, we would have learned that highway 74 was impassable before we got in the middle of it.
The Honda Fit came through for us (as did the load of gifts we were carrying back and were weighing down the car.) Once we hit the interstates, it was pretty much smooth sailing all the way back to Asheville. We even skipped a trip to Trader Joes, just so we wouldn’t have to get off the interstates.
I have to give a big shout-out to taxpayers in North Carolina and South Carolina, as well as NCDOT and SCDOT for the clearing of the interstates today. I don’t think we could have made it home without them.
And it’s back to work tomorrow. Big sigh.
