FST II : Day One – STL to OKC

Falling Star Trek II got underway today with the first leg of our journey — St. Louis to Oklahoma City. As I’ve noted before, the first day or so out of STL is always uneventful — it’s just a slight terrain transition that we see in the first 500 miles or so.

Today, though, we knew we would be in for some pretty fierce weather as we traveled toward Oklahoma. There was a huge front between STL and OKC, and looked to be pretty interesting. In fact, Amarillo (which we’ll pass through tomorrow) was supposed to be getting snow. As we got close to Oklahoma City, we got blown all over the place by some tremendous storms. The rain was so fierce that you couldn’t see thirty feet in front of you. Wild stuff.

Tomorrow — we journey to Albuquerque!
