Where did I leave off...oh yeah, the ice storm..
So when we finally got to the RV park on New Years Eve Carrie decided she wanted to do a snow angel
Which didn't work out very well because ICE - LOL
Soo it was late, we were tired, and the "champagne" we got was inadvertently sweet *gross* so we gave up and settled in for the night. The following morning we woke up to this
At first it didn't seem so bad, and we had a schedule to keep so we got on the road.. Being that we were in Texas and everything was flat for miles we thought we had a pretty good shot at making some progress..15 minutes into driving down a side road we pulled into a gas station.. The ice was TERRIBLE as you can kind of see in this pic,
but we heard the storm was going to continue for days and we really didn't have the time to spare so on we went. The side roads were somewhat better than the highways because all of the cars and tractor trailers on the highway were polishing the ice making it extra slippery.
Highway all backed up and flipped over tractor trailers everywhere
Four hours later we'd made it about 60 miles to Abilene. My nerves were shot from constantly fighting for traction and even though we'd barely made any progress we found a little RV park to stop for the rest of the day..
Since we couldn't really do much we cracked open a bottle of wine and started on the curtains, which we were highly motivated to do because we were tired of waking up at sun up..
I hung the curtain rods and Carrie made the curtains
The curtains are up and you can kind of see the (very messy) bed on the floor
I'll post more in the morning..
