4/28/13 Sunday at Hohenwald, TN ( Natchez Trace Wilderness Campground-TT)
What a night! We kept getting alarms on our NOAA weather radio warning of flash floods, very heavy rain and possible hail. John managed to fall asleep after midnight, but I stayed awake, anticipating. These are the times I wish I didn’t have an imagination, as I listened to the thunder in the distance. I drifted off around 3 am, then the heavy rain hit from 4 am to 5 am. THEN I fell asleep, until about 8 am. I don’t feel well, so I’m trying to drink lots of liquids and nap – all morning, while John reads.
For the afternoon I feel well enough to read, so that’s how the day went. Tomorrow we travel to the Corps of Engineer campground at Cheatham Lake, not real far from Nashville. It’s been gray all day, but not raining. Hope we have the promised sunshine Monday.
Late in the afternoon I realized I hadn’t accomplished my little project – to try rubbing alcohol on the stains on the inside of our front door. As I started this project, I began talking with the couple next door, who were letting the stream of water off their awning. Of course we got to talking about RV’s and TT. They gave us some tips we’ll look into, particularly regarding our Elite contract. They have Elite too, but seem to have benefits we didn’t know about. We got hungry so parted, while I quickly finished my project (it worked). Still drinking lots of water, I went to bed, hoping for a good night’s sleep.
