In Greene County, Alabama


At 11:23 I am at the rest stop in Greene County, 190 miles from base, just off I20/59. Once I passed Tuscaloosa, sunshine, temperatures, and dew points rose dramatically. It is now 68 with a dewpoint of 65 here in Greene County. Receiving great support from my friends Jennifer as always and from Fred Gossage, who is feeding me great weather data today:
