Ironically, Mr. Intensity asked, "Will there be a tornado?"
Nervously I laughed and said, "I hope not."
As we crossed from Oklahoma into Kansas, the toll worker said, "Turn on your radio. There are tornado watches across the state."
FREAK ME OUT.
The radio in his truck doesn't work. We called our Kansan hosts and asked them to watch the news and keep us informed. Thankfully the heavens didn't open until our truck was safe in their barn. It was 8pm and a terrible storm was upon us. At midnight, the house was shaking from thunder. The lightining was blinding and hail was on the roof. Thankfully, Mr. Intensity slept through it all.
We listened to the iPod on our battery operated iHome (the tape deck in the truck doesn't work, either.)
The next day, we drove another 8 hours and stayed with friends in Denver.
Wednesday we drove another hour and landed in Ft. Collins, our home away from home this summer. Below is a picture of our two bedroom apartment. It doesn't look this clean now.
Yesterday, Mr. Intensity and I went to the pool. All the kids were shivering and had blue lips. The water is that cold. I only soaked in the rays.
Mr. Intensity is totally in his element. Our apartment complex is swarming with boys his age.
Me?! I've been to Whole Foods (which is about 5 times the size of the one in Little Rock!!), and have discovered there's a Sprouts AND a Sunflower Market here. Yay!!
Should I make my southern friends jealous by telling you the humidity is so low here? I love Colorado's weather.
