Country roads take us home, after dashing through the snow

Shoshanah here. Today’s trip was mostly dominated by snow. We left Columbus, Ohio at around 9am, and didn’t make it to our first Springfield of the day until 3:30 pm. There was a lot of white in between.

This morning, I had never driven in snow before in my life, since I learned to drive in South Carolina and Florida. With the aid of Avi and his living-in-Vermont experience, I can now confidently drive through whiteouts in the mountains of West Virginia.

Springfield, West Virginia was much larger and more exciting than we expected, and after holding up our banner in front of the post office and church, we hit the country roads again. Springfield, Virginia mostly identifies as being a suburb of DC, but there were still plenty of identifying Springfield signs to give the town its own character.

We’re spending the night in DC before heading to Springfields Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Massachusetts tomorrow. Don’t forget to donate while you can still get some benefit from Uncle Sam for 2008. Happy New Year!
