Here we are, safe in a bed and breakfast inn in Springfield MO, with a tornado watch to the south of us; a tornado having hit Joplin, just down the interstate that we'd been driving down; rain pouring down, and the sun lighting up again on the horizon.   There are scary pictures on the television - the roof has come off the hospital in Joplin - and there are reports of tennis ball size hail (Gary, the very helpful owner of the Walnut Street Inn, helped us move the car under cover ... ).   We're very lucky our timing wasn't different ... earlier, we hit one bad ten-minute storm, but that was it, though we were following the storm maps on our iPhones down I-44 all the way to Springfield.
