We had a problem getting breakfast this morning because a number of the fast food places still didn’t have electricity, so we stop at a gas station. This station was extremely busy due to all the hurricane workers needing food, gas and water. We did get something to carry us through to Grand Ridge, which was 15 miles, where I was able to get some biscuits and gravy.
The hurricane damages were getting less and less. One interesting thing is the trees that were uprooted were laying to the north when the other days they were laying to the south. It was obvious that we had passed through the eye of the storm.
We reached the big city of Tallahassee and even though the weather looked like rain we hadn’t have any yet. Yet is the key word. Whenever we get into a big town the cars do not give us much room and the drivers are always in a big hurry. We had to stop many times to check for directions. We knew we were headed into the middle of the city, close to the Florida State University, but we had to narrow it down.
We were headed to a place called Tallahassee Bike House. This shop takes in old or damaged bike and repairs them so they can be given to the underprivileged children. It is a great thing they are doing and they opened they warehouse to us. I can’t tell you how important that was to us because the rain we had not seen yet came.
