Category 1 sunset
Yes, todays weather came as quite the surprise to all of us here. To awaken to the news that the state is under a "state of emergency" caught most of us off guard. We kept ourselves alert and watching the weather by television and computer. The forecast was for flooding and possibly 8" of rain but when the day came to end our total was near 2" instead and without the high winds predicted. A sigh of relief is an understatement!
What we did manage to capture was the beauty in todays sunset! The sky was so bright it nearly hurt your eyes to look at it. The shadow of the setting sun created the dark colored "funnel". Just prior to the sunset we watched a rainbow over the lake. I will miss the beauty of sunrises and sunsets over the waters of the coast.
Monty did manage to get the tires of both vehicles and the camper trailer ready to roll. And I think I have the last boxes filled. The dogs are quite stressed and follow our every step thinking they just might be left behind! NEVER!!!!
I would ask that once again you would please bear with us as we make this trip home. We may be off line for the next week.
Our first stop will be to spend a couple of days saying goodbye to our friends in Mississippi. Don't ask me how I will be able to speak those words to Ms Faye and Mike??!!
From there we will be heading to our school where we will receive our ordination papers and wrap up the final details.
Once again, please keep us in your prayers for safe and uneventful travel. As I said, we each will be driving our vehicles and each pulling a trailer! We will need all of your prayers!
God's blessings on all of you and we will be back in touch within a week.
Until then . . . Susan and Monty
