Missed us again.
Because it was such a cool day, DH and I decided to take a day trip over into Arkansas to hike a bit. We went to White Rock State Park to hike the bluff line and look at the view. We had only done 1/3 of it when it started to thunder and sprinkle. We thought it would be a good idea to get off the mountain and headed back south to I-40. By the time we reached it there was no rain, so we headed north on 540 to Lake Ft Smith State Park. Drove through rain to get there but it had stopped by the time we arrived so walked around a bit there. Then back to I-40 and home on Arkansas 59 north out of Van Buren. Ran into rain again off and on till we got to Daughter's house, 9 miles southeast of Stilwell, where I looked in the gauge and saw 2.25 inches, which is a total from the last two weeks. They got over 1&1/2 inch of that since Thursday. So we came on home, hoping, so hoping that we would have also gotten rain. Got home to find less than 1/10th. Such a disappointment.
