Home Before the Storm

Yup, I made it home just as it began to rain! The 797-mile drive took almost exactly 14 hours. I was stiff, hot, and bored, but it was all uneventful, which is a very good thing to be able to say about a long drive.

Apparently the 100-degree heat turned my brain to mush. I often get some good thinking done in the car, but today I just vegged out and let the green scenery stream past with no memorable thought processes occurring.

About 5 miles from home I began seeing lightning, and stopped to take a picture of these awesome storm clouds. I think the second picture is what's called a shelf cloud.

My trip was totally awesome, and now I have to buckle down and begin to get caught up with all the things I've ignored, including you, by blogging friends!

Well, it's good to be home, isn't it? Nothing like your own bed.

Safely home after a good time with good friends.

Welcome home, Joan. No doubt you'll soon be planning the next trip.

Glad you beat the rain! Now I know what to call that kind of cloud. :)

Ann said...

Welcome home. I hate those long drives. Glad to hear you had a great time.

Lin- I DO like my own bed.

Chuck- Lots of safe miles under my tires. I want to keep it that way.

Jean- I'm always planning! The trick is how to pull them off.

Ivy- I just learned it recently, myself

Ann- I chose to do it in one huge chunk rather than have less time with Marie. I'm glad I did.

Teresa- thanks for stopping by!
