We bundled Sweetness up and drove out of Memphis on dry roads and high clouds. We left behind an east coast waiting for a big blizzard. 2-3' are predicted in DC and about 10 inches in Wareham. I was filled with nostalgia driving over the Mississippi River and into Arkansas. The day was gray and snow clung to the naked deciduous trees. We had an easy drive, and about 7 hours later we were in Dallas checking into a Homewood Suites. Tomorrow will be more interesting.
