July 3 Day 2 Sunday, Nashville to Jonesburg, MO

clear

Today, we went through 4 states (Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, and Missouri) and crossed 4 major rivers, (Cumberland, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Missouri) to travel 377 miles to tiny Jonesburg. Crossing the Mississippi at St Louis we noticed the old McDonalds converted to a casino appeared to have had file. The water is still very high in that river as the ramps we under water on the shore side. All travel was on Interstates as we are trying to get to the mountains as soon as possible. 

The big excitement today was the worst thunderstorm I have seen yet in our 48,000 miles of driving. The headwind must have been 50 mph with visibility only a few feet. For a while the entire right lane just stopped dead. However, the windblown horizontal rain created the illusion we were moving and I kept my foot on the brake and held on. Only the fence post on the right side proved we were standing still.
