After Oklahoma City, we left to head to Amarillo, TX. Uncle Bill had a difficult time driving with the strong crosswinds. Along the way, we saw a water tower that was tilted. Right by it was a sign saying that they had the largest cross in the western hemisphere in their town. I'm pretty sure I've seen the same cross earlier in the trip. Also, for some strange reason we drove through Gray County four times even though we were on a straight west route. Each time we switched into a different county. Uncle Bill believes that the line was drawn by someone who placed their hand on the map and traced it :). As we got closer to Amarillo, I noticed some thunderhead clouds. When we checked in at the KOA, they said that a tornando had landed nearby by was heading northeast. The area was under a tornado watch. We were rocking and rolling in the wind until early evening. Now, I can still see the flashes of lightening to the northeast of us. Uncle Bill and I also got laundry done. Tomorrow, we're getting the camper inspected and possibly worked on. We hope to head to somewhere in New Mexico tomorrow.
