Welcome to my new blog. As we travel around the country showing and teaching art we have had our share of interesting adventures and near disasters. We have also made the most wonderful friends and discovered a variety of interesting places that we never knew existed throughout our country. Join us as we share with you the happenings of our adventures near and far.
Yesterday we traveled to take our Grandpuppy Obi back to son Travis who was in Lawrence with his sweetie to attend the KU basketball game. As you will learn, we are all avid KU fans. He had just proposed to Brooke on Friday so they were celebrating and enjoying their first Valentine's Day with a ring on her finger. We decided to make a quick (or so we thought) stop in KC to pick up a couple of things. Traveling on I70 we came to an abrupt stop. We were one of the lucky one's as we were a few minutes behind the occurrence of a chain of 100 cars that had just crashed throughout the area. We sat parked on the highway for almost 3 hours. Luckily I had my laptop and internet access. I could check on the news of the event and also get a bit of work done. But not so lucky was the fact that there was no restroom to be had. Mark and I both had to grit our teeth. But seriously, it is by the grace of God that no one was killed. The blinding snow just came all at once. One minute the road was mostly clear and the next you were in a complete white out. We were happy to pull into home last night even if it was much later than planned.
