In our travels ....

By now everyone has heard of seen the tragedy in Indianapolis at the Indiana State Fair.

On our return trip from the FMCA Rally in Madison, WI, Colleen and I made our way past Indianapolis on the southern beltway and and we moved on toward Louisville. We eventually wound up in Lexington, KY and stopped for the evening. The sky at this point was looking a little weird but it was getting a little late and we wanted to have dinner.

On our way toward the restaurant, the weather began acting up something fierce. Low lying, fast moving, black clouds were visible as we approached town. What I would describe as straight line winds in excess of 60 MPH began to blow as lightning arced out. The trees were swaying back and forth and swirling around violently. Small debris and loose items were coming toward us. We were actually looking for funnel clouds but none were seen. The car was buffeted as we felt the car bouncing around in the wind. It was very dicey there for few minutes.

We shortly arrived at our destination as the sky opened up and the rain began to fall. We threw jackets over our heads and made our way inside the restaurant. Looking out of the windows we could see what was left of garden department at the local Home Depot. What a mess.

As we finished dinner the storm subsided and we left the restaurant and made our way out to our car. To the east the sky was still dark and ominous and we could see that it was raining. To the west we could see the sun as it was setting and just then Colleen said "Look at the rainbow!." It was amazing! The rainbow appeared to us as a complete arc from horizon to horizon.

As we arrived back to our hotel room and settled in, we turned on the TV. The News was just coming across the screen about the collapse in Indianapolis .......
