Greensboro is between Raleigh and Charlotte on Interstate Highway 85 and 40.
53° F (12° C) at 7:00 a.m. Elliston is between Richmond and Washington, D. C.
I didn’t check the temperature. I don’t think it dropped below freezing.
49° F at 7:00 a.m.
31° F (-1° C) at 7:00 a.m. I delivered a load of used clothes hangers from a large department store chain to a warehouse at the Petersburg Federal Correctional Institution. My instructions said nothing about the prison so I thought I was lost when I arrived at complex of buildings surrounded by a dense hedge of chain-link fence and razor wire. The warehouse I delivered to was outside the fence and I did not have to go through any security checks. The men that unloaded my trailer all wore matching green uniforms. As I write this I don’t recall seeing any name tags or prisoner numbers on their clothes. There were no physical barriers keeping them from walking off the grounds although there may have been security cameras.
39° F (4° C) at 7:30 a.m. The warehouse was open this morning and I delivered my load. Cheraw is a small town on US Highway 1 about 110 miles northwest of Myrtle Beach.
When I arrived in Cheraw, the warehouse I was delivering to was closed. I spent the day parked in a Huddle House parking lot.
