#16 Stormy Weather

I drove to Knoxville today for a funeral. Those are never fun and when combined with some explosive family drama, they’re even less fun. On the upside: I got to see my sister and my brother, who I haven’t seen in a while.

I planned on driving back home to Nashville this evening, but the weather had a different idea in mind. It rained the entire drive to Knoxville and it rained the entire drive back to Nashville. The only difference was one drive was being done during the day and the other was being attempted at night. By the time I came across the plateau fog had settled in on the road and water was just pooling all over the place, causing several cars to hydroplane. I made it as far as halfway and then had to pull over and get a hotel room for the night.

Luckily, it’s May the 4th and Star Wars movies are playing on the hotel TV.
