Since we returned home last week after the storms ran us to Chattanooga, Anne has been doing NOMADS work and more tax work and we have still been working at the house getting it ready to sell. Starting two days ago our weather forecast began getting progressively worse. We were planning to leave north Alabama Saturday to return to Atmore to get our second Covid vaccine on Sunday. However, by last night we could tell today was going to be a dangerous day in our area and we decided to bug out again. We got up at 6 this morning and hit the road south. Sometime after we left, our area was placed in the High Risk category by the weather service and by mid-morning the storms began. So very thankful that we have wheels under our second house and we were able to leave quickly. It was a windy drive but we made it safely to Gulf Shores. We continue to monitor the storms as sadly they are not yet over. We know there have been at least five deaths and others injured. So sad. We have friends with homes damaged and flooding all over our county. No one has been able to check our house yet – the roads are not yet passable – but we really are not worried. It’s just stuff. Thanks to all that have sent emails and texts to check on us. We really appreciate you thinking of us. Please be in prayer for all those who have lost loved ones and others who have lost their homes. Everyone stay safe out there.
On the way down we stopped at The Warehouse Market and Bakery at Exit 54 on I-65 to grab a delicious lunch and a few extras.
