February 12, 2010 7:00 AM


We pull out of Waco and immediately encounter light snow. By the time we made it to the I-20 exit south of Dallas, traffic was in a grid lock and snow was falling heavily. We kept pressing on. By a little after noon we made it to Hope AR and the snow stopped and the roads cleared. By the time we made back to our home-site in Perryville, we had imagined the worse, gotten our grief out of the way, and strangely the sight of the wreckage of our home, though startling, was not as bad as we expected. However, eveything was gone. Only the second story over the basement was recognizeable. The 2006 Dodge Charger in the carport was nothing but the sheet metal chassis. The wreckage was still smoldering. We picked up Ronny from my parents, visited the insurance agent, and checked into a hotel for the start of cleaning up our lives and getting back to as normal as possible.
