Travel Blogging X

 O'Hare Airport, Chicago, IL:  The wandering DrsC are headed home at long last, we should arrive tonight. We toured the Oak Ridge, TN, area yesterday, the friends we were visiting live nearby. 

A city of 75,000 sprang up there during World War II as the Manhattan Project used the site to purify uranium 235, fissionable material for the Hiroshima Atom Bomb, as well as the test blast at Alamogordo, NM. The museum is good.

We are wondering what storm damage we will find in CA after the big rainstorm yesterday. Our place should be okay, we aren't located down in the floodplain near the river.

Later:  Our place is fine, no damage other than two limbs blown off the driveway cottonwoods.
