As I mentioned in the last post, we got confused as to which way we were to go. Did we take Southern Expressway Stoplights to I-65 or go to I-85 and then west to I-65. It came up too fast to make a decision and we were unable to get over to head to I-85 so proceeded into Montgomery, hoping we weren't going to have to go through a bad area.
Turned out, it was a very pleasant drive until right before we got to the I-65 entrance ramp.
Traffic of I-65 was heavy all the way to Birmingham, I mean, VERY heavy. Then, though it was about 2 in Birmingham had traffic as bad as a rush hour.
It was then that we started hitting a lot of rain. It poured. I was driving along looking for a place to get off and eat and saw a sign for a place called Sonny's BBQ in Cullman, Alabama, so got off.
It is about a mile from the interstate and well worth it. They feature pulled pork and, as they say, "We'll serve no swine before its time." Mighty tasty.
