Richland,Missouri- October 12, 2012

The weather forecast for last night was that there could be storms during the night in Oklahoma.  Knowing the potential for severe weather in the area we were in Tom set up the weather radio to alert us if there was any such weather during the night.  Thankfully,  we did not get alerted to any thing.  But we awoke this morning to the sound of  thunder but it wasn’t until we were preparing to leave that it started to rain.  As we continued our travels over Route 66 through Oklahoma the rain fell  fairly steady.  We stopped to eat lunch in Wyandote, Ok. before leaving Route 66 and then getting on I-44/Route 66 in Missouri.  After lunch the rain tapered off.  We stopped at a rest area along I-44 where the picnic table shelters resembled diners, garages and other businesses along Route 66.

Even the floor of the Information Center was tiled in map showing Route 66 from Chicago, Il. to Santa Monica, California.  Finally 328 miles to the east we stopped in Richland, Missouri at the Gasconade Hills Resort-( resort ???).  This evening the clouds have cleared out and the sun was shining but it feels chillier.
