We Can Hide, But We Can’t Run!!!

A monster storm will be buffeting us in about an hour so we’ve battened down the hatches and are preparing to ride out the weather right here at Rainbow’s End – we can only hope that there’ll be a “rainbow” at the “end” of this storm.  The good news, for us, that is, is that the storm will be primarily a severe thunder storm event with most of the real bad stuff taking place north of Livingston, Texas.

Yesterday was primarily a nothing day with the highlight being root beer floats for dessert.  Mike and Peggy joined in to help us get rid of some the root beer and vanilla ice cream – we did a dang nice job of it, but there’s probably enough left for the four of us to toast the storm with later this afternoon.

Our plan, should it hold, is to depart here tomorrow morning heading for Natchez, Mississippi.  Everything hinges on how fast the storm passes through.  It’s moving slowly and may entertain us through the night as well as right into tomorrow morning, we’ll just have to wait and see.

So, as you can see, everything for us today pretty much rides on the weather conditions.  We have water on board, we have the batteries charged with the inverter on standby, we have our Nooks charged up, we have West Wing cued up in the DVD, and we have some games that we can break out, so we have plenty to keep us entertained while Mother Nature unleashes her fury all around us.

The Force Be With You and May God Bless  - - - - - - - -
