It has been a busy busy summer, early fall. My parents are in the process of moving from their lake residence of sixty some years to a senior apartment in the Twin Cities. I am thrilled. They will be closer to me and my brothers and we will get to see them more often. They will still keep the cabin and spend their summers up there, but winters are in the cities. My time has been consumed with packing and all the little details that need to happen with a move. The move date was September 20 and all went extremely well. Now that the basic move is done, I get to move on down the road. I cannot wait. To top it off, Tony has decided that he will accompany me again, this time for two weeks.
We decided that we would head down south - northern Kentucky, southern Indiana and Ohio. No special reason, it just seemed like a good place to go. I spent may hours planning the trip (which I love to do) and getting ready to go.
The big day arrived, overcast skies, but the weather people said that there was only a chance of scattered showers. That is ok, overcast skies are great for driving No sun to get into your eyes. Well, let me tell you - never, ever believe the weather people. They just make up random stories to keep themselves amused.
We got to the barn and started hooking up the car behind the RV. It started to rain, not just rain, but pour. Ok, that's ok - they said scattered showers, we can deal with it.
Well, there was a thin, thin strip of clouds showing up on the radar. As we drove southeast, what happens but this thin, thin line of clouds decided that they will follow us all the way to Madison . Blue skies ahead of us, blue skies behind us - but right above us, nothing but dark clouds and rain, rain, rain. Lots of fun driving.....Not.
We ended up at a campground called Lake Farm Park within the city limits of Madison.. We got one of the last sites available that had electricity. This is one of those parks where you feel like you are just out in an open field - not much charm. We were only staying for one night, so that was ok.
