New Year's Day Travel

We left Chattanooga about 9am. It was a New Year and the sun was shining but the air was cold. A cold front moved through yesterday and it is predicted that the south will be in cold temperatures for the next 2 weeks. Traffic was light most of the day. We traveled through a corner of Georgia and then through Alabama. We have stopped for the night at a campground, Benchmark Coach and RV Park, close to Meridan, Mississippi. We crossed into Central time when we entered Alabama but our bodies are programmed for Eastern time, in a day or 2 we will readjust.
We did see the New Year in last night but were asleep soon afterward. Travis seems to be doing a little better with his injured leg. We try to keep him from jumping up and down from chairs and the bed and he has been limited in activity with our traveling the past several days.
It is 33 degrees here in Mississippi at 7:30pm. Brrrr! And we were hoping to get out of the cold weather.
