Are we there yet?

I'm alive! We made it all the way to Stratton, Colorado. Twelve bloody hours in the car, but still, we're getting closer! We got in this incredible storm. Twice. It's been like armageddon a bit here in Colorado, but it's been... an adventure. The first Twister worthy storm struck whilst I was driving through the Rockies, which was such a beautiful drive. About seven o'clock the rain started pouring again, hard. It was raining so much I couldn't see. (I slowed down. Speaking of which, today was the first time in my entire life I have ever driven the speed limit on the freeway. And it was before the storm! Someone should build a monument.) Anyway, so it's raining the entire Pacific Ocean, and then this lightening bolt strikes between two clouds right above my damn car. Whew. It was kind of loud.

At any rate, it's been a pretty good day. We made it to our goal destination without incident, saw some beautiful scenery, and experienced what it would feel like to drive through the ocean, except without the sharks. Tomorrow, Kansas. Oh hell.
