But it was fun to take photos on such an awesome day. I kept thinking, "It better rain, having to move!" Mark took the entire day to help me. It was an absolutely gorgeous day and made for some great photo ops along the way.
I loved that the sky was all Toy Story on us and we even stopped to get a photo with the Texas bluebonnets on the side of the road. There wasn't any traffic. Country driving!
Closer to the city, I took a quick video of traveling along the road. The clicking you hear is my flashers and I would have taken it in a horizontal frame but I was also trying to drive and not wreck. lol I've never gotten any attitude from others on the road, which is nice.
Going under any bridge and being passed by an 18-wheeler are always hold-your-breath moments; I got some good shots. I must admit, I found myself not so freaked out by the whole thing this time. I cried the first time an 18-wheeler went by while I was driving! And going under a really low bridge at 60 mph? That was enough to give me a heart attack. Not literally, thank goodness, but it was extremely stressful. Luckily, there weren't any low bridges on our route.
We got everything settled by late afternoon, just in time for the rains to hit yesterday. Blue Ridge gauged over an inch of rain according to my weather app, so I'm really glad we got out when we did!
Where I'm parked, I was able to see the roof a better and saw the full extent of the hail damage to my sky light from the two rounds of golf-ball-sized hail that came through a week ago. Luckily, my tiny house sky light just got dinged up pretty good. I think the rain sensor is out, though. I'll be checking that in the next week.

Finally, this is one of my favorites shots! I got the windy road, the landscape, puffy clouds, blue sky, no traffic and a Blue Ridge sign! Beautiful day. :)
