|Sassy and me|
The next morning is when everything started to go south (figuratively, not literally). The load we were supposed to go pick up to take to Texas basically dried up and disappeared...instead we were instructed to head back east to Rochester, MN, and on the way we ran into a mechanical issue and ended up sitting at a truck stop for most of Monday waiting for a someone to show up and fix us. Then because it was late and the roads were bad, we just stayed there for the night. Yesterday we made it to Rochester (home of the Mayo clinic, by the way) to pick up our load. And just guess where it's going...yup, you got it! Pennsylvania!
I feel like I'm in that movie, "Groundhog Day" with Bill Murray. We just can't seem to break out of this rut of driving I-80 either east towards Pennsylvania or New Jersey, or I-80 west back to Illinois. I almost cried when I saw this:
|No please! Anything but that! Once we cross back over,|
we'll never make it back again!
|In case you've ever wondered, the mighty Mississipp|
does ice over
|There are, however, open areas as well|
