Safe At Home …

… but home may not be safe. 🙂

As I suspected, we left Mississippi yesterday. As we got ready to leave, my entire family–well, all 15 of them that were present at the time–told me they’d maim me if I drove on to Huntsville last night. So, I stayed over in Guin with my grandmother and drove on in this morning.

Of course, driving in West and North Alabama this morning was two hours of rain-filled fun. I spoke with Amy a few minutes ago, and she had to sign off of her computer because of rain storms causing brownouts in her area. The rain is here, but the nasty storms aren’t, although tornado warnings are cropping up all across North Alabama.

I have a safe place to be, of course; living on the side of a mountain makes those easy to find. 🙂 So I thought I’d drop a note before connectivity may become an issue; and then I’m going to sleep my afternoon away, I think. I don’t sleep well when away from home anymore, for whatever reason, and I drove 1050 miles on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, and another 150 to make 1200 for the four days ending today. My bed is calling me …
