Grateful For...it Will Surprise You


Great Plains Grasslands

This past weekend Tropical Storm Claudette left a path of flooding, destruction and death across Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and beyond.  We could have been caught up in all of that mess.  Thank goodness for humidity (I never thought I would be writing those words) for it forced us to leave the area before Claudette arrived.

At the time when we left I was disappointed.  I really like the southern states and was looking forward to touring them again.  Now here we are in the vast great plains of the midwest.  I really like them too, in fact I like this area even more so.  I knew I did; I just needed the reminder.  People think I am nuts when I tell them I love driving through Kansas, Nebraska, the Dakotas and more.  They find it boring; I do not.

I have driven across those states too, and the plains and the grasslands are amazing! USA is such a diverse country, so huge, so many different geographical regions. That grass is so green right now.
