Looking up

Apparently I spend a lot of time looking up at the sky.  I have always liked clouds, and I miss the carefree days of my youth when I could lie in a field and watch clouds float by. (Yes, I really did that.) During the tour, I saw some nice clouds.

Heading to Dyersburg, TN

Then when I got to Dyersburg, I finally got to see rain. I had been smelling and anticipating rain for over a week.  The rain comes quickly and leaves quickly, and in between it pours.  The first few drops on my windshield were quite large.

Finally, rain!

Just as it started raining, I arrived at my motel.  I got out of the car and twirled around a few times. A downpour of rain but it was still warm–how exciting!  I then walked the ten steps to the motel.  The two women there looked at me like I was crazy. I wasn’t insane, just soaked.

Returning from Missouri!
