Friday - November 14, 2008

It rained off and on all night but when we woke up this morning the sun was shining – yeah!! On the way out of town John decided to stop at Wal Mart again and buy some new windshield wipers (he refuses to buy them at home as they are about 3 times the price and crappy!!). With the new wipers installed we were on our way and after about 15 minutes it had clouded over and within half an hour it was raining – have I mentioned that I am getting tired of all this rain? At least we had the new wipers!!!

The drive was good today traffic wise, but I-80 was the pits a lot of the way – very bouncy and lots or road noise. There were a lot of new wind farms going up south of Des Moines, but they are still installing them so very few were actually running. The rain lasted until about 1:00 p.m. then it quit and the sun came in and out for the rest of the day.

We changed our plans for today last night and decided to drive on into Nebraska then cut down south from there so tonight we are in Henderson, Nebraska. The park was a KOA but is now privately owned and the price was right for the night plus we have good wi-fi. It is quite cold out so John will be taking the hose off tonight so it doesn’t freeze. There is quite a good wind, we are being rocked by it while we are sitting here, but hopefully it will have calmed down by morning.

And so ends another great gift of a day and please come back again to see what other change in routes we have made tonight!
