MonsterFest 2020 is in the history books now.
Thursday, the weather was dodgy as Hurricane Zeta (by then tropical storm strength) blew into the mountains. We left in the wind and rain but soon drove out of it. One the way down the Saluda grade, we managed to miss a jack-knifed semi. Fun times. The ride down into South Carolina was pretty smooth until we ran into rain showers that dogged us all the way into Florida. Fun.
As planned, we just hung out at Dr. Phibes and Co.’s house the whole time with very minimal trips out. Damn, pandemic. It would have been nice to have a day out sightseeing. Maybe next time. I did get up at the ass crack of dawn on Sunday and went out to the beach to watch the sunrise. It’s become something I look forward to doing when I am down there. This year, the waves were really aggressive, so it was no surprise there was a rip current warning in place.
Monday, we had a (thankfully) uneventful drive back to the mountains. It’s always good to be home, but always sad to say goodbye to the good friends I only get to see once a year.
There was too much food eaten. There was too much alcohol consumed. There were not enough movies watched. Ha, ha.
And now, the MonsterFest 2020 Movie List:
