We made it from West Lafayette to St.Louis yesterday around 1:30 PM. At first we drove through a pleasant spring rain, enjoying greening fields and a few wide, vivid expanses of new clover the same color as the blooming redbud trees. As we approached the junction just before St.Louis we saw a dark and threatening cloud over the city. Are evil weather wizards angry with this city? The international news was already featuring the severe tornado that filled the airport with glass, rain, and stranded passengers last Friday!
We began fulfilling the purpose of the trip in the afternoon, visiting Len's 2 sisters, 2 brothers-in-law, 4 nieces & 2 nephews (counting spouses), and several of their children. Some by lucky coincidence were also visiting here.
Sunny today? I don't think so.
