Most of day spent driving in torrential rain, during some of the heaviest, climbing into the mountains of Pennsylvania, my driver's side windshield wiper suddenly flew off. Almost stopped in Frackville for a replacement, but thought better of it & stopped at the next town. Stopped for gas shortly after that & my gas cap blew away across the lot, managed to chase it down. Only other stop of note was so L. could get some sweets from the Alexis Diner in Newburgh.

Earlier, wet, wet, Gettysburg. Saw the recently restored cyclorama, pretty amazing, though we weren't allowed enough time together, lunch at a pretty OK brewpub, walked the dogs through sodden fields by the North Carolina monument, briefly visited a drenched Little Round Top, took pictures of tour groups' clustered umbrellas.

Anyway, home again, home again, whiskey & ginger ale.
