Ending As It Began

Wednesday, May 18th was the start of the road trip to Virginia for the wedding. It was raining.
My mother's husband let us use his car for the trip. It got, at the height of our travels, 27.4 miles to the gallon, not quite double the Jeep. That meant we didn't need to fill up but once a day when we were road traveling and only once when we were driving around Warrenton. To say it saved us money would be an understatement. 

Mom headed home today. It rained overnight and poured when we went to breakfast. It had quit just as she left but she's going to drive into a few showers while heading back to Iowa. 
We could do without rain for a bit or, if Mother Nature insists upon rain, have it be the light soaking rain, the kind that washes the streets clear but mostly soaks into the ground.

So, the week off for the wedding ends as it began, with rain. It's okay to end with rain. I have wash to do and I wasn't planning on going anywhere anyway. 

Beverage:  Cranberry Grape Juice
