Norton nearly a no-go

I had second thoughts about making the 120-mile drive to Norton when I approached the junction of K-9 and US 283. 

I didn’t check the weather before leaving Russell. It was sunny outside, the temperature was approaching 50 degrees (10 Celsius), and all of Sunday’s snow had melted from the streets. I figured it would be that way all the way to Norton.

The sun was out all along I-70 to WaKeeney, but by time I reached Hill City, the clouds had thickened, and it looked quite dark off to the northwest. I finally checked the radar on my phone at the Graham-Norton county line, and I discovered there was precipitation west of Norton. 

Oh boy.

I thought about turning right at K-9, heading to Logan and then to US 183 to head back to Hays, but I decided to keep on going. I had made most of the trip, and why waste it? I also figured the precipition would not be that bad, and I would be able to take my time heading back. 

The junior varsity girls game has just started. The boys JV is playing at the old Norton gym, which is on US 283. The girls varsity game should start at 6:15. Peggy and I are going to eat after, which is the main reason I came. 

I had my work done by 10 a.m., so I was able to sneak in a nap before I left. I’ll stay up late tonight to get most of Russell done, because I can sleep early tomorrow night before my Thursday morning appointments in Hays. 

I left Buffalo Wild Wings just before 8:30 last night. Spent close to six hours there. Old habits in a new city.
