Today it is snowing here after a weekend of beautiful 70 degree weather. I am not surprised though as March tends to be a weird weather month here in the South! Is Spring really here yet?
Weather is one of the few things that can not be controlled when it comes to travel. Weather can be a friend or foe when it comes to travel as well. It can certainly be an adventure!
One of my fondest weather related travel memories is when my husband and I had to dig out of our suitcases our short-sleeved shirts (we didn’t pack any shorts) for a hike in Juneau Alaska in July. On the way up the mountain we had to put our jackets on and hike through a snow-covered area of the trail. You just never know! Good thing we had great hiking boots!
A word of advice…always pack for the unexpected! Whatever happens though the memories will make you smile even when Mother Nature did not cooperate. Sometimes that rain storm on a day you wanted to go to the beach can bring a family closer together and it is a great time to bring out the board games!
Do you have a weather related travel story to tell?
