The wind was more out of the west today so we decided to hit the road and see how far we could get before the wind turned south or we started getting wet. Heavy thunderstorms were in the forecast for all of Oklahoma. We zipped along into the Texas panhandle and on through Amarillo with very little traffic. The skies were very dark and we could see where some showers had fallen in the not too distant past. Our decision point was Elk City; if we didn't stop there, we were going to keep going.
It was still dry as we got to Elk City so Joe said we were early enough, we'd just keep rolling; nothing motivates an RV driver like a strong tail wind. We were just about 20 miles west of Oklahoma City when we found the rain and thunderstorms. We stopped at Flying J at Morgan Rd. to top off our diesel again since the rig will be parked here for three months and Joe likes to have a full tank. By the time we reached Rockwell RV Park, where we stay, it was raining seriously. This park historically has a flooding and drainage problem and today, it was a virtual lake. We found a spot and Joe plugged in the power; that would keep us going until the storms passed.
Welcome to spring in Oklahoma!! We're looking forward to putting down for a few weeks before we head off to Asia.
