There's Got To Be A Morning After

 If we can hold on through the night
We have a chance to find the sunshine
Let's keep on looking for the light

Obviously I'm feeling quite poetic this week. These are the opening lyrics of the song The Morning After which was the love song from the movie The Poseidon Adventure and they are looping through my head this morning. Again last evening there was a series of vicious, tornado spawning storms near Marion, AR. We spent a chunk of the evening hanging out in the shower rooms with our fellow adventurers at the KOA in, you guessed it, Marion, AR.

The storms, some with hail...all with heavy rain, continued through most of the night but we had returned to the motorhome after the tornado warnings expired.

This morning we are headed north on I-55. Rich is wondering how much you all would pay us to NOT park anywhere near your home since we seem to be a magnet for tornado activity these days!!!

Here are a few views of the KOA as we paddled drove out of there this morning...

This is the exit lane we were paddling through driving on.

This is one of the dog walk areas, complete with a nearly submerged trash can. Someone with a great sense of humor had added a "No Swimming" sign underneath! You may have to enlarge the photo to read it.

Those are the rear ends of RVs you see on the left.
We were parked in an area that was much drier than these folks were.
So much water everywhere.
They have a nice Kamp K-9 but, as you can see, we were certainly not taking the girls to romp there this morning...giggle.
Stay tuned!
Lovin' Life ~~ Still Looking For The Light


  1. We are a little bummed not to get to see you guys this time around, but totally understand and agree with your decision to move on northward. =)

    I have to say... I planned to go with a friend for an overnight getaway this weekend. A wildflower photography weekend with our fancy cameras. Planned this weeks ago!!!! I never do that! In fact, I think the only overnight trip I have had since Braden came along and without the boys was when Tanner was born! Maybe I shouldn't do that again since it created record flooding EVERTWHERE! ;)

  2. I'm glad to know that this one is your fault and not ours!!! teehee


Please leave a comment, I love reading them!
