Down for the count

We are at the Elks lodge in Havre de Grace, Maryland (map).

I was able to pull myself together enough yesterday to drive the 40 miles here from Carney's Point, about two hours with all the traffic lights on US-40. As soon as we got parked, though, I went to bed and crashed. Louise wandered across the street to the Weis grocery store and picked up some meatballs in the deli, and fixed us a nice dinner in. The store came in handy again today when we ran out of decongestant.

I've been wheezing all day, so we are definitely here for another night. I think for a while that Louise was worried I had contracted H1N1, but my symptoms are more those of a cold than any type of influenza (handy chart here from Roche Laboratories). With any luck I will be over this thing by tomorrow and we can get back on the road.
