Canada Beaver: Day 3, Saturday, Dec. 22

Today we go to Nebraska to spend the night and have Christmas with Holly's sister. Tomorrow morning we plan on having breakfast with David's cousin on our way out of town to South Carolina. The drive should take anywhere from six to eight hours, possibly a little more because there could be weather.

Did I say "could be"? Because I meant "there totally is." It started shortly after leaving Holly's parents house in northwest Oklahoma.

And got worse as the drive went on. By the time we got to Wichita we had been in the car for over six hours, on a drive that would normally take only about 2 1/2 hours. Holly and David decided that the trip had become too dangerous (after spending several hours sitting still on north bound I35) and getting all the way to Nebraska would be impossible. They decided we should spend the night in Wichita and then head to South Carolina in the morning.

And in the tradition of pure unadulterated class, we passed this bumper sticker on the trip. People are stupid.

there could be weather

When is there ever not weather!?! I mean, as long as you are on a planet with atmosphere, there is going to be weather of some sort.

Nuts to definition two. Nuts, I say!
