I left my sister's house in Ohio on Monday morning. There was a lot of bad weather predicted for Tuesday in NC, and I didn't want to be driving into it tired from a long drive.
I get so sleepy when I drive. My car got stuck at the bottom of her seriously long driveway the night before. I had planned to leave as early as I could on Monday to get an early start on my trip.
Unfortunately, one of the items I left in the car were my ear plugs. As a result, I only slept about 45 minutes all night. It was one of those nights of insomnia. I didn't want to wake up my sister at that hour, but she had made me promise I would not leave without saying goodbye. At 4 AM I left for NC. The first couple hours were pretty slow going because of the snow. Around 6 I pulled over and slept 90 minutes. I drove a few more hours and then slept for another 45 minutes. Eventually I made it home.
The next day I spent shopping and stocking up for the storm that was coming the next day.
Like much of the southeast, we are under the wraps of a lot of snow, sleet, and ice. One great thing is that we have not lost power. That is amazing because sometimes we lose power when it just RAINS!!
