We had planned to start north on Thursday, taking Route 45 through Tupelo, Miss., and Paducah, Ky., (a 2-night stay with a visit to the Quilt Museum), and then taking I-69 to Indianapolis, Ind., before arriving in Decatur, Ind., for our Tuesday service appointment at Monaco.
It sounded like a good plan… until we started listening to the weathermen on Wednesday! They were calling for severe storms and possible tornados in Florida, Mississippi and Alabama all day on Thursday and Thursday night. Not good!
We briefly considered leaving a day early on Wednesday and staying an extra day at our first stop… but we had dinner plans, and it would be like going from the frying pan into the fire. Tupelo, Miss., (our planned stop for Thursday had a big red bullseye on it!) Leaving on Thursday, though, looked like it would have us driving in heavy rain all day… which didn’t at all sound fun!
