In Sidney, NE
Tonight we are in Sidney, NE in an America's Best Value motel. We thought we might run into a lot of snow today, but we didn't. There was a little blowing snow in eastern NE but the roads were mostly clear and dry. It was a fairly uneventful day. I read aloud from Arthur Ransome's Secret Water as we went along in the car. I did some work on the computer. We listened to NPR's Fresh Air. We snacked out of our food box. The miles pretty much flowed by - 550 of them - with Ellen at the wheel. There was virtually no snow on the ground all across Nebraska. Very strange for this time of year. But we are expecting snow in WY - both in the air and on the road. So we'll be taking it easy and hope to arrive in Alpine tomorrow night. Paul said Max has had a little fever but we're hoping it'll be better by tomorrow night.
