We made it to Virginia! Whoo-hoo! 2300 miles is a long time in a car. (I keep thinking of that Modest Mouse song... eight hundred miles is a long time inside a car.... nine hundred miles is a long time inside a car.... a thousand a miles is a REALLY LONG TIME IN A CAR). We got here, unloaded P's stuff, returned the truck and trailer (that was traumatic) and went to bed-- just in time to be woken up Sunday to a blizzard. A real and actual snow storm. Which made going into DC to pack impossible. *sigh*. But I'm really happy to say that we made it, mishap-free, in a reasonable amount of time, ahead of the icky weather. It was actually lovely weather the whole way. (Though I have a lot to say about Texas. Later.) Of course, all of my stuff is still in DC and really really not packed, and me with no time to do so.... so I'm kind of panicking. And I can hardly see my desk for the pile of work that has accumulated in my absence.
But whatevah! We're here! No more airports! No more phone calls! Wheee!!!
