I-40West from Church Hill to Jackson, Tennessee
Mill Spring, Missouri
Left Aunt Sarah's about 1030 this am and just stopped for the night at about 7:30. It rained the whole way. One thing we noticed was the abundant state parks at exits along the way. We got into it at first, listening to country music. I cracked up over this one song called "Rain is a Good Thing". I found out it's from 2009 Luke Bryan but since I never listen to country, it's not surprising I missed it. Goes something like Rain Makes Corn. Corn makes Whiskey. Whiskey makes my Baby Feel a Little Frisky! So, THAT's why Rain is a good thing, I guess! About 100 miles out of Knoxville we saw a stretch of trees in the median that were snapped and twisted for quite a ways. We figured it might have been a light tornado or micro-burst perhaps. We only had 2 slowdowns (besides ourselves) with one being a jack-knifed truck/trailer that had flung a 58 chevy off on the side of the road before Knoxville and the other a 2-mile stretch of one-lane for construction on the other side. They had a named sign for the stretch of highway going to Memphis before you get into Jackson "Music Highway". Glad to get in a decent room and kick back for the rest of the evening and hopefully sleep in!
