So today was one of the longest driving days EVER! Not only did I encounter at least 3 traffic jams/slowdowns (some close to an hour), but when I got to northern Kentucky, old man winter threw a welcoming party for me. I started to encounter this so-called "freezing rain." Soon after, my car was sliding around on the road like a 4 year old on a slip and slide.
My plan was to get into Akron where my family lives around 7-8pm and have dinner with them before leaving the next morning to drive 4 hours back south to Cincinnati. Well, at 6pm, I wasn't even in Ohio yet. With 4 hours (or more with the weather) of driving left and a very real possibility of me totaling my car in a ditch, I decided to grab a cheap hotel and call it a night.
I'm bummed that I won't get to see my family, but the good news is that I can get to the convention really early (20 minutes away from here) and not only that, I have free Wi-Fi :)
Oh, and I get to watch Lost tonight in my hotel room *bonus*
