Above photo was taken when we stopped at a rest area near Joliet, Illinois. Looking at the sunny blue sky we would not expect that a storm was waiting just down the road. Good thing my husband was driving because the rain was pouring down like a curtain of water. I felt as if we were driving thru a car wash! A lot of vehicles pulled over the side of the road or sought shelter under the bridge while those continued driving with 4-way flashers on at very slow page, about 30 mph, on the interstate!
Below photo of the legendary Chicago Blues Brothers was taken when we stopped by Polk-A-Dot Drive In in Braidwood. Benjamin joined in the act as he was feeling a bit blue!
We decided to seek overnight accomodation for Saturday night in Romeoville. The Blues Brothers and Betty Boop greeted us as we walked into a dinner called "That 50's Place". Sunday morning we got up real early to drive into downtown Chicago, spend about an hour and started driving back to St. Louis. It was a nice weekend trip on Route 66.
