    I feel blessed we had a nice dry weekend probably close to 50's. Now we're getting our usual rain but at least it's still in the 50's. No snow and ice.
    I'm happy. Here it's a wet cold, or a wet warm.

    My son was getting married Saturday the 13th in Delaware, OH at 5PM. Because of the bad weather forecast for our arrival, Wifey and I left Jacksonville a little earlier than planned... Wednesday at 10:14 PM and arrived about 11:20PM Thursday, spent the night in our comfy van in the Hollywood Casino parking garage in Columbus after a few hours of slots. I looked for casinos online and found they had a few, so we chose the biggest and best.
    We beat Winter Storm Hunter to Columbus, OH, to be there for my son's wedding on Saturday. We did see 3 degrees or less Saturday morning and had quite a bit of snow and ice, but it didn't take long to clear it from my van. And then I got to play with my 2005 GMC AWD Savana Van in the parking lot in front of our hotel... did lots of slides and drifting... great fun and practice in the snow and ice. My son got married and we did lots of dining out the whole time and a bit of shopping and left Monday morning and beat Winter Storm Inga's arrival. We had clear roads and sunshine after West Virginia and a decent night's rest in a rest area in North Carolina... temperature in the 20's, but we had blankets and sleeping bags on the bed frame I built for the van. We had fresh coffee, too, unlimited as I added an automatic switch for charging the auxiliary battery for the inverter and Keurig Coffeemaker... Starbucks anytime.
    Friday, after we got there, I got to shoot with my son at the Black Wing Shooting Center... used my EDC the black P40 with a ported barrel. My son used his Glock 22, a used police trade-in. We had a good time and the guys there were great. Wifey and my son's bride-to-be went shopping while we shot our pistols.
    It was a quick trip and we were glad to get back home and miss all of the bad weather on the road... saw lots of bad accidents on the other side of the road. We really lucked out with the weather and it was clear and sunny but warmer as we drove on back to Jacksonville in NE FL, getting home about 2:30PM on Tuesday.

    Congratulations on the occasion of your son's wedding!

    Sounds like a fun road trip and a good time was had by all.
