We awoke to slightly warmer temperatures (19o) than yesterday (16o) … but without the wind making it felt much warmer.
After enjoying the campground's complimentary waffle breakfast and filling our gas and propane tanks we pointed our motorhome south toward North Carolina.
Skirting Richmond, we made really amazing time … giving Debbie time to focus her attention some of her favorite photo subjects … water towers,
Then, with less than 30 miles to go, a sign of things to come …
Fortunately, the impact on traffic lasted less than a mile.
However, another ten miles down the road …
Not a good omen. Soon we were again creeping along at a snail's pace
Still, we arrived at our campground in Wade, NC under partly sunny skies and temperatures as high as 47o.
However, tonight's weather forecast predicts temperatures droppping into the 20os … although it should be another ten degrees warmer when we get to Hilton Head tomorrow afternoon were we'll spend the next few days. After that, we'd planned on a couple of days in Atlanta, but we're postponing that stop until we're headed north in late April and will head straight for Florida on January 2nd!
