Road Trip to Santa Claus

I broke one of my personal driving rules while taking a road trip. I make it a rule to arrive at my destination before 10 pm, particularly if the weather is bad. Well, it was bad. We left the suburbs of St. Louis this morning at 9, and traveled east. It started raining in Louisville, Kentucky, at around 4:30. I assumed we would have plenty of time to get to our destination, Point Pleasant, WV, before dark when we left this morning, and had already made our hotel reservation. It was past the cancellation deadline when I realized we weren't going to make it to Point Pleasant before 10. We overshot it by an hour and a half, arriving at around 11:30 pm.  It rained continuously the whole evening. Because of poor visibility, the mountains of Eastern Kentucky and West Virginia, truck traffic, and the bad weather, we had some white knuckle driving. My neck, shoulders, upper back, and arms ache from the tense driving.  So we're going to sleep now.  Here are pics of some highlights from yesterday and today...

Don't ask:

Santa Claus, Indiana:

Merry Christmas, everyone!
