In Which We Set Out in a Snowstorm

Left home in heavy, blowing snow to make our way to sunny Florida - what a contrast! It was really very slow going all the way to Cadillac, where we finally found some clear pavement.

We went down 127 (my new favorite route) and stopped at Papa John's Cider Mill for lunch. While we were inside, the snow started up again, and fell so heavily that when we came out everything was blanketed with fresh, wet snow. It continued snowy through Lansing, and from then on we had a wintry mix and then rain all the way to our first destination at Franklin, Ohio.

This was really a dismal day. We never saw the sun. We're one third of the way to Dylan's house.
