We are home now, and Destin, Florida is in our rear view mirror, along with about a thousand million, fourteen thousand and five hundred and seven Snowbirds like us. According to the Highway Patroll statistics only twelve of us could actually drive. From what I experienced they over estimated somewhat. The speed limit from Mobile to Birmingham was seventy miles per hour. We averaged 24.4 miles per hour. Those Interstates are a modern miracle aren’t they : and so GREEN!! Puke!!!
Sorry about that but we just survived a cloverleaf yield situation with a semi up our tail going sixty in a 35 mile per hour zone. It’s kind like a Pitbull on a Yorkie ; watch ya gonna do?
Thankfully there seemed to be no major injuries, only a bunch of jerks tailgaiting and running into backsides and losing track of the road. The result was one lane roads for tens of miles going slowly and often standing still.
We finally made it home safe and sound and had great weather for a couple days until the Great storm came. covering much of the country, thus the pic in the prior blog.
Now we have seven inches of snow not counting the drifts. It’s 27 degrees outside.
My wife checked her I phone and it’ 72 degrees in Destin right now. Flip those numbers. That’s juxtaposed. You can’t make this stuff up. I guess you can, but you don’t have to.
Take a peek at the fire too. It’s for real and was taken within sixty seconds of the outside pics.
Talk about juxtaposed!
