I spend the day with my grand daughter, shopping, baking and coloring... her naps are getting so much shorter, so there is more time for play now. When I took her home, we got caught in a downpour about 5 miles from home. I was right between home and where I needed to go. It got bad real fast and at one point my grand daughter says, "Oma, can you even see where you driving?" And I didn't. The rain came down so fast and the wind was whipping it across and down so hard that it was near driving in a white out.... and I had this idiot driver on my bumper riding on my tail lights cause he couldn't see anything either. Didn't he know that if I spun out he'd be caught in it riding so close. I got scared and my granddaughter picked up on the tension and started getting frantic, so the only way to go was to pull over. We pulled in an empty parking lot from a factory outlet and waited it out. We spend the time calling home and my daughter, letting them both know we pulled over and where save for the time being. talking to her mom calmed my granddaughter a bit and when we pulled back out on the road we were cautious but able to get to her house.
My granddaughter summed it all up when she said she has never been in weather this bad and she'll remember it for a long time how scared she was.
