When I was young my parents used to take my sister and I on Sunday drives. I did not always want to go. I deemed these mini road trips boring. With nothing to do but look at the scenery that passed by, and endure listening to my sister sing, loudly and completely out of tune, because SHE had a Walkman.
I would not trade those Sundays for the world.
And now that I am a mother, I love packing up the kids for a Sunday (or any day) drive adventure. They are usually happy to go, because they never know what we will see or where we will end up.
This past Sunday we decided to head east, since there was a massive storm system building,(the other half of We has a weather obsession) with some of the most intense cloud formations I have ever seen. We did not know at the time that we were seeing the same storm front that was hitting Joplin MO with an intense F-4 tornado.
