Springfield, Massachusetts to Elmira, New York

We have another brief trip on the open road today, but today, we will be on the opposite end of the country from our last trek. It’s also about half the distance between Springfield as it is from Bakersfield to Flagstaff, as we will take 4 hours to cover 278 miles at a pace of about 63.2mph. Shall we be on our way?

An upper level trough moving through the area (and that’s important… it’s been a long time since anything startd moving around there) will be the trigger for a few light showers in the Berkshires of western Massachussetts. As we pass south of Pittsfield, we might see a little bit of rain, and will almost certainly have a cloudy drive, but that will last only as far as te Hudson Gorge, and from Albany to Elmira, the sun will be shining, and we shouldn’t have a problem.
