Relaxing, Visiting, and Some Nasty Weather

Virginia Beach, VA.

50 deg. clear, no wind.
Forecast = Sunny. High 68F. Winds NNE at 10 to 15 mph.

Not much to report, but I thought I'd check in so you knew that I was still kicking!! ;-)

The last 4 days have been spent relaxing and visiting with Joe, Nancy and Amber when they weren't working or going to school. They've mostly spent time with them in the evenings, although some days Joe works from home, so he wanders out here to visit for a little while if he isn't busy. They've eaten some meals with them, but not every evening as sometimes Nancy doesn't get home from work until late.

It's rained here the last 2 days. Yesterday was especially nasty with heavy rain, temperatures around 50 and 20 to 25 mph winds with up to 35 mph gusts!!! There was a front move through the area last night though, and except for temperatures in the 60's today, they're forecasting great weather with highs in the mid to upper 70's, no rain and lots of sunshine for the whole next week. ;-)

The plan is to leave here on Thursday and re-trace our route back to Williamston where we'll stay for one night so that Jim can dump Nora's tanks. Then on Friday, we'll head over to the Raleigh, NC  area, to see Mike and his family.

Did you know that the first peanuts grown in the United States were grown in Virginia?

  1. We drove through that stuff yesterday to arrive in Roanoke Rapids NC to much cooler air than Florida. Like you, we are visiting family before the Reunion Rally. See ya there!
