Location: Catskill, NY (High 37, Low 15)
I don’t know if this happens everywhere, but most winters up here in upstate NY, we have what’s called a January thaw. It’s usually just a short respite of mild weather before the real cold comes in! But we are extremely lucky this year that it looks like it’s going to be the weather we experience our last week before we get the heck out of the icebox! Today for instance…our average high is 30 degrees, but we are going to have a balmy 42 instead. Sounds awesome to me.
After checking out the weather forecast for our route for next week, we will definitely be leaving on Tuesday, going as far as our first stop in Pennsylvania, where we will stay on Wednesday for what looks to be some rain, and then continue on the next leg on Thursday. Our first two days will be long driving days for us – of 5, 6 hours. That’s about as long as we can do with the “kids”.
So far this has been a week of eating out, dinners with friends before we head south for a few months. Last night was another one, at a restaurant in Albany. And I am very happy that I have not gained a pound back.
Just about time for Harry to head to work for his last working Tuesday…and six days until we hit the road!!
