It has been an interesting past couple of days as we drove 798 miles from Watertown, SD to Crawfordsville, IN. The trip was made interesting by nightly visits from thunderstorms, lightning and heavy rains. Our first night at Albert Lea, MN was the worst as I described in an earlier blog.
The second night out wasn’t much better but it wasn’t nearly as severe in terms of thunder and lightning. It rained buckets at Rock Island, IL. We were spending the night in a neat KOA park. Even with the rain falling we were well rested for the remainder of the trip yesterday.
While the weather cooperated as we went through Illinois and into Indiana (loosing and hour) there is a much higher humidity level here making sleep pretty tough. It remains pretty warm and humid all though the night. Fans and open windows helped cool us down. We didn’t use the AC as we haven’t found the replacement circuit breaker yet.
The sun is rising on the KOA park in Crawfordsville. A younger couple owns it and he is a sheriff in the local county. It is quiet and peaceful with an occasional train passing by in the night but that just adds appeal.
Today we are going to visit Waveland, Indiana where Mia’s father’s relatives came from after arriving here from the other side of the big pond. We’ll spend sometime looking around and seeing if we can find the relatives in the cemetery.
We have planned to stay until Friday when we will move on up to Elkhart, IN.
Hope all is well and thanks for stopping by.
