Travel diary I

I'm on my way to Madison, Wisconsin, to spend the Memorial Day weekend with my youngest nephew. Fun!

The trip to the airport wasn't much fun though. I discovered early this morning that my windshield wipers had stoped working. I stopped at my garage and asked if they could look at it and determine if it was something that could be fixed easily. They did, and it wasn't. Bummer.

I decided to head for the airport and hope for the best. And I almost made it. By the time I reached Alexandria, it was raining enough to make it very hard to see. By stopping every so often and manually operating the wipers, I managed to reach the parking lot without crashing. I hope it's not raining when I get back on Monday.
