Saturday was a busy day! I went to a shower for my cousin, Kayla in Hickory Ridge Saturday morning. She got so much good stuff!!! I got to visit with a lot of old friends and family that I haven't seen in awhile. There were so many babies, too! I can't get over how some of those "girls" just don't seem old enough to have babies, but I forget that they are only a few years younger than I am!
Saturday evening we went to Memphis with Amber & John. We got tickets to see Bowfire at the Orpheum Theatre several weeks back. We left about 5pm. And we didn't make it very far down the road when Jarrod's phone starts ringing. It's his mom wondering where we are. She told us that there are reports of a potentially tornadic storm headed for Jonesboro! We then turn the radio on to a Jonesboro station and listen to the storm coverage the rest of the way to Memphis. It's a scary and weird feeling to be away from home and hear about a tornado event going on there! I felt bad for Amber and John whose new Tahoe was sitting in our driveway! I wish we had thought to put it in the garage!
The drive to Memphis was nice, we didn't see so much as a raindrop! When we got to Memphis we got a quick bite to eat and headed for the Orpheum. It was starting to cloud up and sprinkle a little as we walked to the theatre, and it was lightning pretty good. I was glad we got there without it coming a downpour! I checked the radar on my phone before the show started and it looked like Memphis was just about it get the worst of the storm. I just knew that the electricity would go out or they'd have to stop the show! But the show started and before I knew it, it was time for the intermission. I checked the radar again and the storms had already gone over us and we didn't even know it! The show was really amazing!! Those folks are super talented!! Go to their website for clips from the show. . .
By the time we left the theatre the rain had stopped and it was already clearing off! We got home about 11:30pm and were exhausted but thankful that there was no damage to our property or Amber & John's truck!! We had a really fun time, but I could have done without all the weather drama! We were lucky this time, and I know for certain that the good Lord was looking out for us!
