Gulf Shores, AL Day 3

It is looking better and better that we took the southern route back east.  Our normal route took us through TX, OK, AR, TN and VA and those states have been having terrible weather with tornadoes, flooding, wind and rain.  So far we have been in one area with a tornado around us and experienced the heavy hail storm along with the high winds.  We managed to get through all that, but one tornado up north of us could have wiped us out.

The weather here in Gulf Shores has been fine with a little wind and rain last night.  Nothing even close to serious.  North of us in Alabama they had a terrible night with tornadoes and many deaths.  I feel for those poor people.

We will be leaving here on Friday and heading east toward Jacksonville, FL area and then up I-95 to Savannah area and finally arriving in Concord, NC around May 2nd or 3rd.

Quiet days here on the Gulf Coast. We did manage to have a grouper platter for lunch yesterday and it was great.  It is my favorite fish dinner and I would have it 2-3 times a week if we lived here.

  1. Thanks for posting. We were a little concerned. Of course, if I'd have checked 5 hours ago I would have known you both are OK. It's still cold and rain here every day. I think Ron has the van packed ready to head back.
