We are now in Independence, Missouri to help Gary's mother after having a knee replacement. We had a rough journey from Alabama to Missouri due to rain, sleet, ice and snow but arrived safely with no mishaps despite many cars running off the road.
Today, we are expecting 10" of snow so old man winter has followed us here. Many flights have been cancelled so Gary's brother and his wife are staying until Thursday (they were supposed to leave for sunny Los Angeles today).
I will take another break from the blog until we return to the boat in a couple of weeks. So keep warm, check on elderly neighbours and pets and hope that Spring comes soon.
