I drove 10 hours yesterday to be in position to meet a customer early this morning. These things happen -- his kids were sick and he did not come into work. I met with a couple other people and hit the road.
I have a customer visit on Wednesday North of Knoxville, so I am safely ensconced in my Hampton Inn North a little early. The trip over the mountains from the Charlotte area was brutal. Heavy snow, ice and rain accompanied me. Sometimes the visibility was only a hundred yards or so.
Shouldn't we be past this kind of weather in the mid-south by now? At least it is just rain here in eastern Tennessee. I should have a short customer visit on the morrow and be home by supper time.
All was not wasted on this trip. I was upgraded last night to a full-blown suite. Full living room, 1-1/2 baths, etc. This has happened before, but it is always cool. There are some benefits to travel and always staying at the same chain of hotels.
