After we had toured Lincoln's cottage last Monday, we received a call from Amtrak informing us that our return trip back to Florida was cancelled. Apparently a train accident south of Richmond that morning had made it impossible for any trains to go south for a couple of days. John and I then made plans to take a rental car home, arriving there a day later than originally planned. And we now we are dealing with the temperatures in the lower 80s, requiring us to run our air conditioner. So hard to believe that we were dealing with cold and snow last week! And since we have been back we can tell it is spring with blooming dogwood as well as azaleas. Pictured below is a live oak with bushes of pink azalea below it.
