I decided that I was about due for an oil change, and that seemed like a good nothing-else-to-do activity, so I drove to the nearest service station in Meredith, NH. While waiting for my car, I chatted with one of the car dealers who informed me she was originally from Maine. She proceeded to make a few recommendations on places to visit while I was visiting her home state.
Having the rest of the day free, I decided to just drive around the area for a while and see what I could find and discovered that covered bridges are a popular thing to visit in the area
One interesting aspect of the day was the very distinct differences in altitude that the highway took from bridge to bridge. As I drove, I watched the rain turn into slush, then sleet, then sleet that seemed to get lofted a bit more easily by the winds until finally I was high enough for it to be snowing. The snow was thick and heavy, but it was an interesting change to watch, and as I came back down the process happened the same in reverse. My final destination for the night was in Woodsville, NH where it snowed heavily all through the night, and I could find neither wireless internet nor a cellphone signal.
