We had two bad choices: drive through forecasted treaturous winds and go pass Saint Louis on Sunday OR stay put and face the Monday morning heavy traffic of Saint Louis in an expected thunderstorm. We chose the former and made it. Sunny day but terrible winds (y ventait en titi...): motorhome and Smart were assaulted by crosswinds all the way and a lot of unexpected gusts. The old folks are now at rest - a bit in the middle of nowhere - and hope for no tornado. We stopped in a Wal-Mart on the way and couldn't believe how we could drive in such conditions; we had to hold the Condo door together.

You are driving into the eye of the storm. We are in for about 30-40 mm of rain while London at this time is getting snow. This storm is massive it is at Torontos door step and streches all the way to Regina. Tell Mr Banks to put 2 power packs on next time, then you will get warp speed.

Bonnes nouvelles en "titi" de lire que la force était en vous davantage que celle alentour. Take care!!!
