Day 2 of our travels

Day 2

sunny 42 °F

No wifi to enter a full blog.... watching weather report on tv... tornados? Snow? Cold? What’s going to happen?

I have Wi-Fi back....

Ok so we leave Cortland McGraw Ny at a balmy temperature of -8! We did have a full breakfast at the Day's Inn so that saved a bit of cash, and Louise was talking to a couple returning to Ottawa who offered a coupon for a 3 night stay at a time share in Orlando for $99! Do we or don't we? We'll figure it out later...

The Interstate 81 has a lot of 18wheelers on it... a lot of 18wheelers...

Louise figured we should do things along the way, so driving through the hills - mountains? - of Pennsylvania in the sunshine we detoured to Pottsville where we visited the Yeungling museum...

where we toured the original brewery - rebuilt after a fire - which included hand dug 150 foot cave/tunnels they originally used to cool the beer... there's even a brick wall put up during prohibition to prevent cooling the beer... we even sampled a new beer they produced but their Black & Tan is great...

Our tour guide takes responsibility for this one: what do you call a cow with no legs? Ground beef!

I am not responsible for that one... just repeating...

We hit a diner before leaving, the Garfield Diner to be precise, but no cat was to be found... The food was good though!

Back on the road we made it to Hagerstown by 6:00 and the heat was there! Warm enough that I offered to hand Louise up on her offer of camping at the State park... however we couldn't get through the reservation line so we gave up and settled for Motel 6. No breakfast but it's clean... a walk to the mall across the street and a Dollar Tree on the way back, what more can we ask...

And then we listened to the weather report...

Snow? How many inches? 2? 4? 6? 8? Starting when? 7:00am? What are we going to do? And the weather will be worse on the road?

What to do? What to do? What to do?
