Storms, Water, and Bluebonnets

The storms did come.  There was a tornado just southeast of us, but luckily, the worst of the storm seemed to go around us.  I didn't go to bed until 1:30 after the storm had passed.  I was watching the weather radar on the computer making sure there were no other warnings.

When we woke up this morning, the sun was out and it was the beginning of a beautiful day.  We decided to go to Fredericksburg to see the bluebonnets.  Our winter has been so mild this year, they are out about a month early.

First, we walked over to the lakebed to see if there was any change.  It has been dried up for awhile, but today there was a river running through it!

We left for our drive to Fredericksburg.  Approximately 12 miles from Fredericksburg, is one of the prettiest drives in Texas during the spring on Willow Loop.  

Bluebonnets were abundant along the road.

After the rain, brooks and streams were flowing everywhere.

It took us about one and a half hours to make the drive looking at the beautiful sights.

We returned later in the afternoon and received a call from Camping World that our part was in.  So, we are headed back on Wednesday night to spend the night there for our 8 a.m appointment on Thursday.
