On the lodging side, I called several apartments and checked out a better hotel. This hotel will charge me about $430.00 per week and the one I stay right now is ~$250.00. Of course, it is much better there but I probably will stay in this economical hotel for a while. As with respect to apartment, I need to keep looking.
On last Friday, I drove about 12 hours and, half of them, was under freezing rain and snow. Very proud of that too. Just like duracell batteries, keep ticking 🙂
