[Roanoke, Virginia, October 29, 2012]

Leaving the JPG Meet-Up in Richmond, Virginia, I had a 650-mile drive home to Nashville, Tennessee.

I encountered heavy weather thanks to Hurricane Sandy, so I stopped for the evening in Roanoke, Virginia. That was the right decision, because it snowed all night all the way to Tennessee.

As I was driving around town looking for a place to have dinner, I saw this beautiful “art deco” theater, which was built in the 1920s.


As always, thank you for stopping by this page.

    I am so very glad you stopped and worried if many of our "family" made it home safe. I had a few delays but a safe flight. Wonderful colors on this excellent night shot.
