We planned this trip to Kingston, NY for weeks. How lovely and fun. Three authors, friends, a car packed with our treasured books. Chancy weather but I drove on, ever the optimist as dark clouds rolled in. Two and a half hours later, traffic delays, we arrived in the small charming town as a few raindrops fell. No problem. Just a few. As soon as we set up, the deluge began and never let up. Scrambling to protect our books, we finally trudged back to my car where spirits high, we told stories all the way home.
