We drove home to Tennessee together on January 3rd and 4th. We had to wait for winter storm Hercules to drop 14 inches of snow on the Capital District area!! We slipped and slid all the way home!! It was crazy dangerous but we got here safely. I was supposed to go to work on the 6th but we had three snow days instead!! It was a nice welcome home for Brian as he didn't have to be alone right away. We were able to spend lots of time getting him accustomed to Tennessee.
We headed back to NY again on the 18th of January for Brian to finish up his job and to have his retirement party. Of course it snowed in the Pocono Mountains and I was driving! We saw three accidents in a five mile stretch of highway so I slid (literally) into a rest area and made Brian drive!! We got to NY safely but I had my eyes closed the whole time!! We were able to pack most of the rest of his things in the car to bring to TN. We also visited and had a very nice retirement party and cleaned out his office. He is officially retired from the state of NY!!! Yay!!
