Day 2 Wednesday Night May 25, 2011
Marie and I spent most of today traveling through Alabama covering 404 miles. We intended to get as far as Memphis, Tn. however while we were about 80 miles South of Memphis Edwin called advising us of the stormy weather that may hit the area that we were planning to travel through this evening. I also talked with a truck drive at "Loves" truck plaza who advised against traveling any farther in that direction this evening so we decided it was best to stop for the night. With the potential of severe weather ahead I got permission to park here at Loves for the night. It has began raining with lightening and thunder (not much wind) so I am glad we decided to stay here. We did see some awful tornado damage Northwest of Birmingham so we are trying to be cautious. Perhaps we can get an early start in the morning.
