On Sunday night, Anuenue checks out the current progress of Sandy...not looking good for airplanes!
Time for Plan B. Step 1: Fly to Denver! Anuenue checks out the snow-capped Rockies from the airport terminal. She also sent some postcards home from the airport mailbox.
Step 2. Fly to Atlanta and rent a car. It is a little windy in Atlanta but not bad otherwise! She drives through downtown Atlanta to stay on the outskirts of town overnight.
The hotel has a pancake machine for breakfast. Anuenue watches pancakes emerge and has breakfast before starting on Step 3: driving!
The next state is South Carolina, where she stops to get a map at the visitor center.
The town of Gaffney, SC has a giant peach water tower! Sadly, all the peach farms are closed for the season.
Next state, North Carolina, where there is a giant traffic jam. Anuenue gets an unexpected tour of Salisbury, NC while taking a detour.
Finally (almost), Virginia. It becomes darker approaching the remnants of Sandy, and starts to rain. Anuenue gets a trip through Richmond with looming clouds.
Finally, home in Maryland! After all that travel, Anuenue will stick closer to home for the next few weeks.
