Everyone is back to regular abodes
Hubband and DTE made it home safe and sound, although a bit latter than scheduled Friday night. DTE spent Saturday doing assorted things needed (packing and some cleaning) to go back to school. Sunday afternoon I drove her back up to Duluth and then drove back home this afternoon. The drive up was fine, despite the sub-zero temperatures (it had warmed up since the day before and was only single digit temperatures below zero, instead of the double-digits we have been having.) The drive back home for me was almost a heat wave, it was up to +9°! However, just before I hit the Twin Cities it turned icy and there were cars off the road in several places, and the overhead warning sign did have something about "Caution! Crash on Highway 52 Southbound." Yep, that would be the road I needed. On top of that the radio kept warning about horrible road conditions south of The Cities with some big snowstorm for SE MN. I saw more folks off the road but I made it home all in one piece just the way I prefer. I am feeling rather tired and "car-lagged," so I plan on joining the jet-lagged Hubband and read my book. Maybe I'll even have it finished in time for book group tomorrow. Probably not, but I doubt I'll be the only one, and it wouldn't be the first time.
