Hi! Jamie here – and I just wanted to tell everyone who is planning to travel today to be So-So-So careful!! I set out last night from Glasgow, Ky – heading back to Cleveland, Tn and ran into some major problems.
We never even made it to my dad’s for Christmas due to his treacherous country roads – but had to stop at the mall for a “Food Court Christmas” – which was less than ideal. After that – it was 30 miles an hour driving down I-65 South towards Nashville. Cars were off the road everywhere!!! My 4 kids in the backseat were just as on edge as I was – since we could barely see the lines on the road in front of us.
We stopped for gas and discovered that 3 more miles up the road there were 4 tractor trailers on their sides and a 4-mile parking lot of cars behind them. We decided to give up and stay at a Holiday Inn Express for the night
I want to give a HUGE shout-out to Kansas, who not only entered a coupon code for us to make our stay just $69 – instead of $105 – but ALSO put us up in the LARGEST ROOM in the hotel – just because she knew we needed the space!! Here we are at breakfast this morning – making the best of a bad situation by filling our bellies with cinnamon rolls and biscuits & gravy. We’re about to head out again – so please keep us in your prayers today, as well as all the other travellers worriedly hazarding the roadways today!
