Another day of driving in the wind and now at home. We pulled out of Amarillo around 9:00am this morning for our final day on the road. The local weather report there indicated that the storms that had generated all the wind had moved out and we should have a calm day. Unfortunately, that did not happen. About 30 miles out the north winds picked up and hit us broadside all the way home, although not as bad as what we experienced yesterday.
Other than the wind we had an uneventful trip and arrived at the house around 1:30pm. Everything appears to be fine here other than the house having that "all closed up" smell. That will go away as we get the air conditioner running and get everything aired out. We unloaded the essential stuff from the coach and then locked it up for the night. We'll take a couple of days getting it unloaded and definitely will give it a good bath. After nearly two months out in the desert with weather from everything from wind to rain to snow the coach really looks bad.
Always good to return home but we are already starting our planning for the next trip, which will be in about three week from now.
