We started out our day under bright blue skies heading north to
for three visits. This was
the first time we got to go to this area for visits and we loved the views as
we drove. Each area we serve in has
beautiful and different things to see. Bowie

Tuesday we had appointments set and then had to cancel due to severe weather in our area. Strong winds and tornado warnings and heavy rains. We didn't want to get caught that far away from home in a bad storm.. So we will reschedule for next week with each sister.
Wednesday was a wonderful day in the temple and the drive up was under clear blue skies.. It was such a switch from the day before..
