Last night I spent the night in Mt Vernon, Illinois. Tonight, after around a 700 mile drive, I'm in Burlington, Colorado, after driving through a very bad storm. The weather service said to expect golfball sized hail and winds in excess of 70mph. I didn't encounter any of that but in Goodland, Kansas, they had enough hail they had to bring the snow ploughs out.
Tomorrow I'll amble down to Colorado Springs and on to Salida. It should be a nice relaxing drive. Not like today. M.L.
