Stella's Storm

Bill and Stella are still out on the road.They spent the weekend fighting the wind and rain across the heartland. They got as far as Checotah, Oklahoma on Saturday. Bill took this video of the torrential rain coming down when they stopped there. This same unstable storm is  bringing rain, sleet, snow or a "wintry mixture" depending upon the temperatures.



Bill and Stella put off going out in the rain for as long as possible. However, Nature calls in different ways, and Stella had to go out in the storm. Here is what she thought of it.


This was after walking in the heavy rain, flooded parking area, and flooded grassy areas. She hurried back to the truck, where Dad dried her off and made her comfy.


Stella says to be careful out there. Stay warm and dry, if you can. And pray for nice weather.

  2. Oh my goodness, what awful weather to drive in. My heart goes out to them being out there in this bad weather. Good thing that dad is there to take care of Stella. She's such a great companion for him on the road.
    Prayers for safe driving on the road.
    Hugs,

  5. When you gotta go, you gotta go!
    Positive thoughts for Stella and Bill to stay safe, and for this crummy weather to end. It's very cold here, and my pipes are frozen, which happens every winter when the temperatures really drop.
    Hope you had a pleasant Christmas!

  6. Well, i am praying Bill and Stella stay safe and that these storms stop. We were blessed to only get a little rain out of all of it, and some more normal weather to follow. Our hearts break over the devastation others suffered.

  9. Here in the Hill Country in Texas the temp dropped from 75 to 30 in two days. Luckily we avoided the awful weather in Dallas, however, just some rain, and a bit of snow on the roof tops this morning.

  10. Glad they are safe.

    We had eleven and a quarter inches of rain in less than three days. Water was roaring here.

  13. Having to travel in that weather is so dangerous. I am sure Bill is very careful, but there are always lots of idiots on the road. This weather is so bizarre. We rode the tandem 23 miles yesterday on a sunny day with a temp of 75 degrees. Today was another rainy day with the temperature dropping all day so that the temp was more than 30 degrees below yesterday. Crazy! Hope Bill and Stella will be home again soon. Hugs and love, Janet

  18. Awwww, Stella, you poor thing! I wish I had a warm, fluffy towel to snuggle you in too. But I am sure your travel companion took the very best care of you.
