This is why we leave Wisconsin! It is March 25, should be springtime, but instead it is snowing. The low temperatures and the wind made us long for warmer days! Our day's drive ended some 422 miles south. We arrived at Fort Massac State Park (Metropolis, Illinois) where we set up camp and plan on staying a two nights so we can have a day with my parents. Dad, now 99 had a recent health scare so we thought it was a good time to take a break and visit them. Mom asked if they could come to the park for lunch tomorrow, our prayer now is that it is warm enough for them to come out.
The drive was very difficult today. High winds and snow showers generated some real challenges, not to mention the increased fuel consumption.
We are certainly looking forward to the rest of the trip and the opportunity to do some work at the United Methodist Children 's Home in Louisiana.
