Weather changes our itinerary
From Moab, we had planned to pick up I-70 and visit Colordao, Kansas, Missouri and Kentucky. Well, Mother Nature had other plans. A blizzard in Colorado forced us to turn south and plan a return via I-40. The front that brought tornadoes to Texas and South Carolina and the huge nor'easter to New England started in the West. We decided to hole up in Gallup, NM for a couple of days. Due to our time frame for being in Benton, KY for Ed's training at Ford Refrigeration, we had to make tracks from Gallup to Tucumcari, NM and Oklahoma City, OK. Future stops will be Little Rock, AR and Memphis, TN with arrival in Benton by Sat. 4/21. We will leave Benton on Thurs. 4/26 and be back in CT by May 1.
