1st Day in South Dakota

We arrived in Rapid City this morning, got the vehicles unloaded, and tried to get a few things put away in the home that we will be staying in temporarily. We went to dinner and then went to see Kurt's brother and his family. It was so nice to see them. It has been about a year and a half since we saw them last. Then we stopped by Kurt's Aunt's and Uncle's house to pick up his car. I am really going to like having family close by. It has been so long since we lived near family.
It was snowing off and on today and some of the roads were not clear. I had some trouble getting the van out of the driveway. It was not very fun. I keep hearing that we should not have much more snow. We will see. 
I don't know if my body is mad at me for the three long days of driving or if it is the cold weather it is objecting to or maybe a combination of both, but I am hurting today. My knees, of course, are very sore but also my hip and lower back are causing me quite a bit of pain. I am hoping tomorrow is a better day. All in all it has been a long, tiring, really good day.
Temperature in Hope Mills, NC right now--48 degrees.
Temperature in Rapid City, SD right now--10 degrees.
