We spent Friday night in Terre Haute, Indiana. The Weather Channel let us know that severe winter weather was headed into the area, so we hit the road in the morning to try to stay ahead of it. That worked. We made it into Lansing, Michigan around dusk on Saturday. Our choice was stark: offload the truck while we were tired from driving all day, or rest and offload the truck during the promised icy rain, snow, or sleet predicted for Sunday in Lansing. We decided to have a bit of dinner and offload it Saturday night.
We have a week such that we can stay at a friend’s house while she is out of town. That doesn’t leave us much time for househunting. After returning the rental truck on Sunday, we checked out rental houses down in Holt, in Lansing, and up in DeWitt and St. John’s. That left us pretty tired and we called it a day. The weather is bad, but we don’t have the luxury of waiting for better weather.
