Around lunchtime it was time to get on the road. My step-brother and his son had to fly back home to Michigan. It was a nice-enough drive, the roads were good and other than my making one slight variance from the route (caused by my being blocked into the wrong lane when we got to a critical point in the directions), we were able to get to the airport with a minimum of bother – despite the fact that the interstate was under construction in a couple places this weekend.
The trip home was not nearly as smooth.
A traffic accident that caused an hour’s delay and a couple mysterious (and seemingly causeless) slow-downs meant that the trip home took much longer than the trip to the airport. But I had by podcasts on the stereo, and the beautiful views of the sunset, and of the storms passing to the south of the area would have been something I would have missed if the trip had been equally trouble-free both ways.
In all, it has been a lovely weekend this far, and other than having a couple client calls to take this afternoon, today is looking like it will be equally lovely! No news, no politics – I should really do this more often! It is good to be out of the battleground state for a while.
Wherever you are today I hope that there is more your weekend than news and politics!
