Vacation finished, back to a "normal" overcast Ohio. Had a great 4 weeks in Florida, weather in the 70s and only one shower. We covered 4382 miles, used 155 US gallons of fuel, and managed 28.3 US mpg (that's over 35 real mpg). Pics posted at http://www.flickr.com/photos/nigelgunn
The tail end of Ike got us Sunday evening taking down many trees and overhead power lines.
It's now mid-day Thursday and we're still without electricity although we have all other services. Of course, most of the contents of 2 freezers has thawed. It's a right pain having to visit the library for internet access. At least most major shops are open again. Think we need to get a generator for the winter.
Well... I'm here. The journey was uneventful and United staff are more friendly than American. The immigration proceedure was almost a non event other than the sheer number of people trying to get through O'Hare airport.
Got a garage full of our belongings to relocate to elsewhere in the house but we'll get there eventually.
If anybody wishes to visit, you'll all be made welcome.
It's Tuesday morning, overcast and dull and been raining most of the night. The house is virtually empty of personal belongings and furniture; they're all sitting waiting for customs clearance in New York. Not to worry, I've got my transportation ticket and visa and will be jetting off to a new life on 7th August. Only another 9 days of boredom to go.
