In St. Louis...
We've driven through periods of torrential rain the past couple days in Arkansas and southern Missouri and spent the night (at a Country Inn, of course) not far from the St. Louis airport that was damaged so badly by a tornado last Friday. Nearby are suburban communities that were hit even harder than the airport was and are still without power. It's been a weird spring for this part of the country. The rains and storms have been setting records, the kinds of records you don't want to set.
Jerry has a cousin who lives here in St. Louis, and we had a nice dinner and chatfest with her last night. After that, we stopped at the Ameristar, an enormous riverboat casino near our hotel, and had a fun if un-enriching time there.
Over the next two days, we will meander our way back to Minneapolis over some undetermined path. I asked Jerry how long he could keep up this life on the road if we had unlimited time. We both agreed that we wouldn't be ready to go home yet.
