Pulled Over in PA

We are safe in Pennsylvania. However, we planned on driving to Ohio before we pulled over for the evening. However, from 2 pm on, we were listening to the radio reporting tornado watches and severe storm warnings. And then, I pulled up this image on my phone and we both said “we’re getting off the highway now!”

Where the #3 is, that’s where we were on the highway, about to be in the thick of this nasty storm. So we pulled off at the next exit which happened to be Danville, PA. And as I was entering the hotel lobby, the door flew open from the strong winds. I then became a little nervous. Well, maybe a lot nervous.

As soon as we got to our room I turned on the television and all the local channels were showing this image. I was about to hunker down in the hotel bathtub (and for those who know me, I have this weird thing with public and hotel bathrooms — and the tub would be the LAST place I would find myself in!)

We were both relieved that we pulled over when we did since the storm was following along the I80 path, the same highway we just exited. And as we propped the door open to watch the storm, it was very windy and heavy, pouring rain. The news footage of the highway, flooding and backed up traffic confirmed our good decision.

However, tomorrow, we will have a long drive to Tony’s in St. Louis.

  1. Don’t bring the tornados, but please bring the rain with you. It has been weeks and weeks (I am not even sure if it rained at all in the whole month of July) since we have had rain here in St. Louis.

    Glad you are safe and sound.

  2. Lynne, glad you pulled over. We got some of that nasty storm too!

    By the way, whoever lives at 112 high street must be enjoying Eric’s shirt I bought him. The package was never returned to my address! If it ever shows up, I’ll be glad to send it. Do change the address on the web site. I wanted to surprise him so that is why I used that address. I had a feeling it wasn’t right, but oh we’ll.

    Safe trip to Tony’s and have fun!

    1. Eric was at the Danbury house three days ago and his neighbor, April, keeps an eye on everything for him. And the post office holds all his mail up there. As soon as we get back home, we’re driving up to Danbury and we’ll see if April has it.

    1. Yes, I know. The images have not uploaded yet to the library. I ended up posting a note about the “technical difficulties” in the post. I see one image did go through but still waiting for the other one.
      Thanks Cathryn for reading Cathryn!! And again, happy “blog” anniversary!
