Yesterday was pretty much a wash out. My brother, Steve, came over to visit for a while in the morning before going to work. We were glad to be able to get together with him again before heading south. It was raining and continued to rain steadily all day, so we took a time out and stayed put. It was pretty chilly, also, only in the 50s.
We slept in a bit today and finally left, in the rain again, about 9:30 am. On the way we decided to go to Charlottesville, VA, where Monticello is. We traveled through Pennsylvania (that took forever!), Maryland, West Virginia and into Virginia. It turned out to be about 345 miles, but we are staying for 2 nights. There wasn't much rain, but we did have fog and it was overcast for most of the trip. We had some mountains to go over, but nothing too bad, so the trip was fine. Our campground is fine, nothing special, nicely wooded, which will be good if it gets hot again. Had to use the A/C today when we arrived because it was so humid
The big surprise today was the temperature. We had a high of 81°, something we haven't seen in quite a while! I'm not really looking forward to the not temps again, as I have been enjoying the fall weather. Oh well.
