Finally settled into our family home base in Holliston, MA. Neil’s dad is comfortably set up in the downstairs apartment they created for him just six weeks ago. We arrived a few days ago from Santa Rosa, CA with a short detour to Portland, Oregon to see our kids. Apparently, our weather creation was fabulous as we completely missed that a snow storm followed us into Wyoming.
There we were thinking spring was well underway, as we watched the trees going from bare to sprigs of green and blooms all the way through middle America. Half way through we were dining in an outdoor patio on a balmy night in Indiana. We were entertained with a nice thunder storm light show that evening and arrived in Des Moines with just enough rain to clean off our cartop roofbag (covered in bug bodies).
