Pops had done all of the driving since we stopped at the Indiana welcome center. We got to Mankato, MN the next morning just before lunch time.
He did drive through a little bit of snow here and there but this winter has been just absolutely great all over the north.
We listened to the news and heard about the big boat that ran into the bridge in Louisville, Ky, so now we know why that highway had been closed when we came near there on our way from Texas. One of the people that was on the bridge when the boat hit said he saw the opening in the bridge and got stopped just 5 feet from the edge. Imagine! Oh My! I would've peed my pants if not worse. You all know how I feel about bridges anyway.
