The Long Road Home

Well, the road to Grandma's house was easy, but the road home was a bit longer.  We left Georgia around 2 PM, just like we did on the way down to Georgia.  Things went smoothly (babies slept solidly) through Atlanta and until we got to Greenville, SC.  Then we hit rush hour traffic... and an "incident."  There was some sort of accident right outside the downtown area.  We basically came to a stand-still for at least 20 minutes.  Then the babies (both of them) woke up and started crying while we were just sitting there.  I thought I could just pull my hair out.  I find it hard to sit behind the wheel while my babies are crying and I can't go anywhere.  We were stuck in the left-hand lane of 85, so there was no way to exit.

After we finally passed the wreck, we were able to push on to Gaffney to the same Chick-fil-a that we stopped at on the way down to Georgia.  We fed the babies, changed their diapers, and fed ourselves.  We got home around 10 PM.  There was still a little bit of snow on the ground, but not much left.  While we were away for Christmas, Cary got about 6 or 7 inches of snow dumped on it.  We got maybe an inch of snow in Georgia, but it quickly melted away.  Hopefully we'll catch the next white Christmas in Cary.
