~3000 miles. Through snow, sleet, torrential downpours for a straight 10 hours, tornadoes, 65 mph winds, an awesome rainbow and some sun too. We made it to the new place in m.i.s.s.i.s.s.i.p.p.i.
In east Texas yesterday, there were some of the scariest storm clouds I've encountered. Ever. I was pretty sure we were going to die because the clouds directly above us were swirling into what appeared to be a tornado. It was bloody horrifying. I've been through, seen, and heard tornadoes in the past and this was scarier than any of those times. I had the camera set on video and was pretty sure I was about to get a torando forming on video. Luckily, a funnel cloud did not decide to destroy us but those 10 minutes are up there (next to one of the mountain lion encounters) on my 'I almost shat myself' moments.
Speaking of tornadoes, we got stuck in the lame city of Jackson, MS last night because of them. Otherwise, we would have gotten here sooner. Anyway...
Thanks to my parent's scouting, we already have a place to move into in a few months and when the rain finally stopped today, we were able to unpack the truck and unload our crap into the storage unit.
I have a few photos from Nevada (hot damn, I do love that state) but we no longer have a computer of our own and that kind of sucks. So it might be a while til I get to those.
We're still in MS, we left the North Coast Monday at noon so we made pretty good time. If we weren't on a time crunch and didn't have a moving truck with us, obviously we would have been playing along the way. No cigar. But I'll get to do that in September.
We're headed to Nashville tomorrow and then fly back out to Truckee, CA on Tuesday for a few months. There's still feet of snow there. That scares me. Despite the rain here, I do love the HEAT! Give me warmth or give me...I dunno, not death, but maybe hibernation?
