WE ARE HERE!!!

After spending 4 nights on the road we are finally here!!! We got to Mississippi at about 5:00 today and I must say I was pleasantly surprised! This is a very nice town with the East part being all new and modern and then the West is old and historic. So we have olden day charm with modern day chic....perfect!

The only things worrying me is the weather. Right now we are having a severe thunderstorm. Driving into Memphis today we stayed just ahead of the dark sky and Josh and I really thought a tornado was going to drop down. It seemed the funnel cloud was forming but never took hold...phew! I was actually really scared for a little bit. Living in Idaho I don't remember ever being scared of the weather, now we will have to stay alert to our surrounding because the weather can shift at any moment down here and become dangerous...eek!

Well...I will take some pictures soon of the area and also post a few from our trip, but for now I am going to relax and watch TV before bed!

Goodnight!
