  We had planned to leave Virginia yesterday (Monday), but it had poured (we're talking deluge!) for 24 hours, with more rain and high winds continuing, and we heard of roads being washed out in nearby areas.  We knew that our drive to to Pennsylvania would be mostly on the Interstate, but also knew that the roads out of our resort entroute to the Interstate were VERY narrow, with no shoulder, so we decided not to take the chance - and we sat still for another day. 
   It was a nice drive, through green, green, green hilly country - so breathtaking - who would have thought there were that many different shades of green?!  As we approached Lebanon, we drove through the town of Hershey, PA, with wonderful old fieldstone buildings, a lovely school called The Milton Hershey School, which has beautiful brick and fieldstone buildings and dormitories.  There are many, many big barns around here that appear to have been built well over a hundred years ago - and they are mostly of a somewhat unique design, with a section (at about second floor level) that hangs out over several "window"/doors that appear to be for the horses.
  The views are amazing - softly rolling hills, with beautifully well-kept farms as far as the eye can see!
