From the White House to Ithaca

The White House
Main Entrance
What an interesting day I experienced yesterday. The day began in Washington, DC, with a tour of The White House and ended with an arrival at my parents house near Ithaca, NY.

The White House tour was fabulous. It was cold waiting and walking around DC, but the tour was definitely worth the effort. I will write more about the tour itself tomorrow.

What was really interesting was that Chris and I were back at our house by 1130 AM, and I was on the road for Ithaca an hour later.

The trip to Ithaca started with the Baltimore beltway being shut down due to an accident, but WAZE got me around it. I drove into a snow squall in Shamokin Dam, but drove out after 10 miles.

The rest of the trip was thankfully uneventful.

What a day, however, it included the winter cold of DC, the elegance of The White House, and the snow of Ithaca.
