Friday, February 8, 2013. We woke up to a light rain and left around 8:30 in the morning heading down route 13 in DE. This is a long, long drive south to Virginia – very interesting with a lot of farm land and a lot of farm land with new housing developments. When we got to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge we were not allowed to cross because of high winds and had to wait for an hour with about 70 other trucks, campers, etc in a huge parking lot (we have crossed this bridge many, many times and never have we ever been stopped before). They moved us out like rounding up cattle though – very efficient to get us across and we were lucky because they didn't think we would get across until 7 at night with only a two hour window because another storm was coming
We arrived around 6pm at our daughters house after two long days of driving about 370 miles each day and will spend the next four to five days staying at her house where we will un-winterize our camper. Watching the news about the big snow storm and hoping we did not lose electricity but did notice that only about 2% of those living in Glocester have lost it. Justine in Bristol 100% lost it. Hope her pipes don’t burst. Have not heard from our son in CT yet about his status.
