On our way!


April 10, 2009

Up early to rain. And to the chance of more storms ahead. Just hoping to miss them.

So, we were on the road by 9am. We were up around 8 and packed the truck up. Stopped for a bite to ear at the free continental breakfast. Donny actually ate really well, a blueberry muffin and frosted flakes. Oh yeah, some apple juice too.

We got going and it was wer and chilly. By 10am, Little Donny was sleeping. By 11am, I was sleeping. Just driving along. Donny woke me up as we were starting to go up the mountain. It is such an awesome sight.

Once we got thru the mountains and into Georgia we stopped for lunch. At a Wendy's. It was good, but the place was dirty. We then continued on to our hotel. Got there around 4pm. Very cool. Something like 16 floors.

We were going to go out to dinner, but because of the chance of bad weather we didn't. So we stayed in the room and watched the tv. We had decided to order Pizza Hut for dinner. By 8:30pm we were under a tornado warning. Not exactly what we needed. So we continued to watch the tv and they talked about Murfreesboro, TN. We drove thru there at about 11am. They said that the storms hit around noon. And they were 14 homes destroyed...and something like 3 tornados. It was nasty. We were a little more lucky in Atlanta and had just rain. We did go thru two warnings..the second was down graded to a severe thunderstorm warning. The worst went north and south of us. But it still managed to get my nerves going and I didn't feel so great when I went to bed.
