Rick decided to stop at the Flying J in North Platte, NE. We thought we would be avoiding the worst of the storms.
Plan didn't work!
Less than hour after we parked, we were ushered into the hallway with everyone else - because a tornado had been reported on the ground and headed straight for the Flying J!
We waited until the "all clear" was given ....
Came out - no damage to be seen.
Stepped outside and could hear the warning sirens going off in town - just a couple of miles from the Flying J.
Storms continued for about 6 hours.
We watched the weather closely .... and continue to do so today.
Praying for all those in the paths of these massive and violent storms!!!
Rick said that once he got this load of cream to Winnsboro, that he would need to take a 34 hour reset.
Guess I will be cleaning the truck, doing laundry, balance the checkbook, phone calls, pay bills, restocking the truck ... not exactly a "down-time" .... but things that must be done nevertheless.
I am beyond ready for some "momma and grannee" time with our kids and grandkids! More than just an hour or two as we are passing thru.
Oh, I know - everyone has their jobs, school, friends, other family, homes .... but I want so much to be a part of it all with them!
My spirit grieves. My heart aches. My mind and emotions torment me.
Lord God - protect us. Keep us safe.
Help me to trust in you.
In Jesus' Name ....
i love you.
