Once upon a time a
Middle aged Mom
went on an adventure...with her family.
This is her story....ok my story.
On friday June 22 the plan was to set out on our adventure at the crack of dawn.
So of course we left at noon..
The hubster and I were in good spirits.
We hit the road and hit an incy wincy bit of traffic
We finally got the car to go a whopping 10 miles an hour when we started to see a lot of these...
Then it was right over our head
This is what happened next
Rain was pouring in from all four windows because we had a lugagge carrier up top that was allowing water to seep in through the straps
What to do what to do...? Well, we played a game where we competed who would be the first to catch the lightning on our cameras! My Daughter had her phone and my son had his flip...we waited just a bit...
I won~ and on a side note I need to get out more
again, no worries
When the storm got really bad (the water was rising and the traffic stopped altogether) my husband (who decided to voice his concerns...out loud) said
" HOLY COW THIS LOOKS LIKE TORNADO WEATHER!!!!"
Knowing the kids might be listening I said " No, this is just a summer rain shower."
Would my Hubby leave it alone? NOPE. He responded by saying "Joanne LOOK at it; this is for sure the worst storm I have seen in a long while! " Then he added the cherry on the sundae by saying "Man, I hope we don't get stuck in a flash flood or something."
Ok, now we've got worries
I turned around to see if our kids had actually heard their Dad's comments...and I saw my son doing this...
No worries after all ...we're covered.
