J. navigated while I drove to do a couple of errands, including going to a grocery store near where he and K. live.
Mom and I were all packed and started back out on our way to Pennsylvania when Dad called to say the power had been out at the house since the morning. We had only gone a little ways, so we turned around and came back to J. and K.'s house.
Mom and J. went to the pool, and I listened to the F Yeah Glee Podcast rewatch podcast of "Diva." I'd watched a few episodes after that, and it had been a few days, so I was trying to remember what was in that episode.
I suppose Mom and I will try again after rush hour. Dad called J. at 2:30 p.m. to say that the power was back on.
Later: Mom and I left for Pennsylvania at 6:15 p.m. I was worried we'd be caught in traffic, but it wasn't too bad on 95, and then I cut across to the scenic route. It's a designated Maryland scenic route, not just me calling it that. It was still light when we got closer to home, so we dared to go on the same back roads we'd gone on a couple of days ago. We saw a deer by the side of the road. I honked, and it bounded away. I was a little tense after that. It reinforced that those roads are dangerous. It's more dangerous at night, but that's twice in three days that we've seen deer in daylight on those roads.
We got home at 8:15 p.m. We hadn't made any stops. It was still light enough to see reasonably well when we brought all our suitcases and other stuff inside. It wasn't too warm in the house.
So J. and K. got a few more hours of us than they expected, after they thought we were leaving for sure. Mom got another afternoon in the pool. It was nice to see J. and K.
