Having returned to my home late last night, I can now reveal that my "remote location" was in the DC area where I not only enjoyed the company of family, but I also picked up some great additions to my "Virginia is for Mothers" list.
A great visit indeed, but the return trip was, unfortunately, far from great.
With two children in tow, I started my drive by just missing two funnel clouds which touched down right behind me, a harrowing stretch of blinding rain through Baltimore, and a return to a completely dark, air condition-less home due to a blackout in the town.
At least the kids slept....
until we got home when my son woke up, decided the 3+ hours in the car was enough, and proceeded to play until about midnight.
I am currently taking my coffee intraveneously.
