Chasing flowers tour begins Feb. 14th 2015

It's been a long time my friends and now its time to start posting my adventures again.

I started out Valentines day with business to do east of Ohio, my plan was to beat the weather by 24 hours then head south. As often happens with plans, mother nature threw a fit and traveled faster than I could bringing with her below zero temps and winds and snow. I was lucky to find a place that took me and my 3 dogs. Thank-you Days Inn in Somerset, or was it Breezewood Pa? I
was stranded for 3 days and nights before I could head south due to the cold and snow.

Oh, a very important thank-you Jesus moment to tell you about. I was on the turnpike and it was getting incredibly dark with blackening clouds, I could feel the winds picking up and just a little snow was showing what was to come. A voice came to me as well as a feeling of dread. I listened to the voice say "Get off at the next exit". Sure enough an exit came up, I pulled my little rig into an abandoned gas station just as a whiteout occurred.  I grabbed the dogs and climbed into my camper. It was rocking and shaking and then tornado sirens went off. I handled it well and busted out crying. Took me a while to pull up my big girl panties and get it together though.

So good to hear from you again. I don't handle tornado warnings well at all. Or snowstorms. Or wind. Glad you are still safe.
