It's been a long time since I last posted an entry on my Star-Spangled Journey series. Work, more travels and procrastination contributed to too much backlog. And sooner or later, I'll find myself still blogging about a travel which happened a year ago. So I guess I better get going, posting one entry at a time. So here goes.
I thought the earthquake in D.C. was enough to make this trip one for the books. But no, there was another surprise from Mother Nature.
We've been monitoring Hurricane Irene even before we left Boston. We wanted to make sure that we'd get to our destination and not be stranded somewhere in the East Coast when Irene unleashed its wind power.
