After a night of heavy rain mixed with a little wind and hail, morning came early. We were up by 6:00 and getting the last of everything stored away for travel. Well, at least is isn’t raining…oh, I guess I said that too quickly, because before we could leave, the rain had returned, and
it stayed through Texas, and
stayed through Louisiana.
The rains just seem to keep coming over areas that have already been saturated. In East Texas, we saw water
where water is not suppose to be. We saw
backed up traffic, the cause being
an accident where two 18-wheelers decided they didn’t need to slow down for the rain soaked roads. And there was
more water where is wasn’t suppose to be.
It was raining really hard about the time we got to Shreveport, Louisiana and for two cents, I would have called it a day. But, we keep trucking and
by the time we got to the Mississippi River all was clear. Thank goodness the rain stopped because by the time we got to Jackson, it was
rush hour on 25-N. After several miles of this traffic and a million or so stoplights, we once again found our way to
the open road. From this point we only had about 50 miles to
dinner, fun, and a free night of camping!
A fun finish to a dreary day.
Tomorrow we will have about a 200 mile day on to Red Bay. And, yes there is rain in the forecast for later tonight and tomorrow with the high tomorrow in the 50’s. I guess it is a good thing we decided to come get the heater replaced.
