After 4 Oklahoma runs in a row, the drought is over.  At least for one run. I have a run down to Brownsville.  This particular run would really be nice if there was some detention pay to make up for all of this nonsense of driving back and forth to Barnsdall and not making much money doing it.

Another plus side to not having had to go to Barnsdall today? Tornadoes and flooded roads. To the point the manager put out a mass text to everyone informing drivers that are going up there to use highway 123 - coming out of Bartlesville.  I used to take that route when I'd hang out overnight in Bartlesville instead of going to Barnsdall - where there is literally nothing but a small gas station and a restaurant that closes early. The roadway apparently was flooded on highway 11. 

And, that restaurant isn't open on Sundays, I found out on Sunday when I got up a bit early to go over and get a bite to eat.  Didn't really matter, that is the time I was starting to feel pangs of sickness which exploded on the way home and now - finally starting to feel better. 

Ahhh and watching the news there were 20 tornadoes that touched down overnight in various places and the tornado threat is still going - and some in Oklahoma of course.  I either got very lucky in not going up there or God is watching over me.  I'll take the latter.

I haven't checked the weather towards Brownsville. Not usually tornadoes going down there, but a lot of heavy rain is possible.  Uhh, yeah, I'm going to hit rain but if the radar is correct, it won't be anything too serious.  I'll hope the radar is correct - last time I hit heavy rain, well, Houston was a disaster. 

And with that, I'm outta here. 

The biggest question for me today? To go way around Houston or to attempt driving through it with that tropical depression Emelda lingering...
