It was Wednesday, January 9th, and another day of rain. With no fear of contradiction, we've seen more rain in the last two days than we've seen in Northwest Oklahoma in the last four years. The flip side of this is that once we were down in Louisiana, there was green everywhere (grass, shrubs, trees) and there was water to be seen everywhere. There were even actual rivers...rivers with water in them.
The temperature is still climbing. By this evening, we reached Marianna, FL, and spent the night in a Walmart parking lot. We not only had no heat, but kicked everything off the bed except a sheet. With earplugs to deaden the truck traffic in and out of the lot, it was a very comfortable night.
