jam49 Posted December 25, 2009 Share Posted December 25, 2009 I had to make a quick 600 mile trip Thursday. I left at 4:30 in the morning anticipating heavy rains and possibly bad weather. As I was getting further into east Texas, I saw evidence that it had already rained heavily over a very wide area. As I was driving the weather was cloudy, misty, cold but not unbearable. When I arrived at my destination, I was informed that a tornado had touched down east of town earlier and traveled on the ground about 20 to 25 miles. (fortunately nobody was injured) Since it didn't take just a few minutes to accomplish my mission, I got back in the car to head home. As I was leaving I was informed that it was supposed to start snowing any minute. I politely said thanks for the information and that I would be careful driving home - it was 50 degrees outside and it was supposed to SNOW???? I hope a look of disbelief didn't show on my face! Welllllllllllllll - to continue the story and as the saying goes "only in Texas" - I headed for home in cloudy, misty but not too bad of weather to drive in. When I got further down the road - about 125 miles - the sun broke out of the clouds, I saw the blue sky and white, fluffy clouds. Not too much further down the road, it suddenly clouded up again, got real rainy and thennnnnnnn - strange stuff began falling from the sky. There were all sizes of SNOWFLAKES beginning to fall. I kept driving because it began snowing heavily and I didn't want to be stuck out on the road still far from home. Then, as suddenly as it started snowing it stopped because I had once again driven where the sun was shining. Long story short - I made it home fine, mission accomplished. I must have experienced the bottom of that massive storm that passed over the US. I still wish all a very happy holiday with family and friends. jam49 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
