We stay overnight at a KOA in northern Georgia where they raise peacocks and head out early the next morning. We call and make arrangements to meet Pete and Kathy (Rosie’s brother and sister in law) for lunch in Knoxville Tennessee as we drive through, they do not know Rosie is with us and are very surprised when we meet up at the Cracker Barrel. Ellen and I leave Rosie with Pete and Kathy and continue northward toward Indiana.
There is a line of storms near us as we travel north but we only have light rain all day and arrive at a campground in lower Indiana for the night. We quickly find out that the line of storms included several devastating tornadoes that wreaked havoc all along our path. We were apparently lucky enough to be about 1 hour ahead of them all along the way.
