End of the Road
On Tuesday, we managed to get away from Fernley just before 4 PM. It was so hot that I burned my hand on the door handles as we finished packing. We made a brief stop in Fallon to grab some very late lunch and decided to keep driving while we ate (Lisa drove for a while, then we traded off) primarily so we could keep the minivan relatively cool, as the blistering sunshine quickly heats it up.
As we headed south, it started to cloud up, which helped with the worst of the sun, although it didn't cool down that much even when it rained intermittently. I'm not complaining about the rain! But I guess I must have called it down on us when I said I did not expect rain on our trip after we loaded the new cart Lisa built earlier this week. We got quite a bit of rain, actually. The lightning show on the drive down was spectacular, particularly a quintuple burst over Hawthorne.( On to Bishop and the End of a Long RoadCollapse )
I'm glad the clouds parted long enough last night to see the Venus-Jupiter conjunction. Current Mood: tired
