That way we can be home in a couple of more if needed after the storm has passed. We are fortunate that we have great friends and neighbors that can do the prestorm preparation for us. Also have a daughter and sil nearby that we couldn’t do without. We will talk to them a lot in the next two days. If we dodge the bullet with no damage, we will continue our journey for the next few weeks. If things go the other way, we’ll leave Colorado Springs Thursday morning heading for home……jc
