We got "home" around 6:30pm, and settled in for the night....I watched a couple of NBA playoff games, and Elaine read. We hit the sack around 10:30pm, and quickly drifted off to dreamland......until 4:30am when we were awakened by the coach rocking back and forth! What? An earthquake? No.....high winds, which led to heavy rain, and then the kicker....lightning and thunder that far surpassed that which we experienced in Joliet, IL.....seriously, we were checking for tornado alerts. Fortunately in about 30 minutes the wind abated, and it was just heavy rain and a light show....finally about 5:3opm we went back to bed, and slept until almost 8am, but the lightning, thunder and rain continued for a couple of hours. That's the first time in over 3 months on the road that I was scared by the weather!
The picture below was sundown on Saturday and gave no hint, or warning of what was to come a few hours later.
