I have never had such a harrowing trip EVER! We left Amarillo and finally arrived in Mobile at 2:30 Wed morning, driving through rain for at least 5 hours. There were tornado warnings but we couldn't find a place to stay in Jackson, MS so had to drive on. We did find a La Quinta in Mobile that was great though really busy! They are a really great chain, very dog friendly and are usually very clean, wish their bathrooms were bigger though:-) 7 dogs and two people was a bit tight!
So anyway woke up after only 4hrs sleep to tornado sirens and reports of tornados only a few miles up the road. All told the last news report said 9 tornados touched down by 12pm. YUCK! We finally left at 1pm with all the dogs walked and happy as they could be... Had to hand off one of the pups in Tallahassee and the rain let up enough that we could walk them with just a raincoat and not getting drenched. The rain NEVER let up all day! Very difficult driving all day, stressful... I got home at 10:30 and Debby still had 2hrs to go.
On a lighter note, Patsy is GREAT! I'll share pics of our trip later as I'm very tired and trying to go to sleep now. Patsy had a big run with the corgis and everyone loves her, or almost everyone:-) I think she'll get along great here, very people oriented and smart as a whip. She is going to be a really fun girl!
