Thursday Night on Main at Clear Lake always has a car show and tonite I drove Red and went along with Bob who drove his El Camino. (Bob is Mollie’s dad.)
At 7 pm the band starts playing and people dance in the street – couples, singles, kids, line dancers – anybody who wants to dance to 50’s and 60’s music with a little country thrown in. The band changes each week. The rest of us bring chairs and sit and watch the dancing and enjoy the music.
As we were all facing south we had no idea a storm was brewing to our north and west until suddenly the band announced they had started early because of possible bad weather and sure enough it was nearly on top of us. Can you imagine trying to get all those expensive collectible cars out of there?
Bob told me if I ran into hail to pull off on the shoulder – Farmer Tim, my insurance man, has told me he’d better not see me driving Red in bad weather! Ha!
The weather on the way home was terrifying – ominous clouds, constant lightning, and wind but I kept going and praying that it wouldn’t hail.
I made it home – here’s a picture of the sky.
Many people bring their dogs to Thursdays on Main and tonight I decided I’d take pictures of all of them and put them here on the blog. I don’t have them ready yet but I’ll post them tomorrow.
We’re off to Mayo tomorrow and Becky is coming to take care of the dogs – Hazel will be so happy to see her!
