Christmas 2010 – Driving Back To Peoria

We hit the road early and decided to trust the GPS’s chosen route out of the mountains.  It took us through some really pretty country in northern Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee.  Kudos go out to the states of Georgia and Tennessee for their most excellent snow removal efforts.  North Carolina, on the other hand, gets a big fat raspberry.  Seriously.  You could tell where the state line was by the quality of the road.  After we got out of the mountains it was smooth sailing until we were about 20 miles outside of Peoria, where we ran in to frozen fog.  The visibility was terrible and it was more than a little freaky seeing fog outside when the temps were in the single digits.  We arrived safe and sound though, got the car unloaded, and headed to bed at a decent hour.
