After waking up in the hotel, we ate some breakfast and then checked out. The rain had let up for a little while so we decided to go for a walk along the river. It was nice to walk along and see the downtown area of Little Rock on the other side as well.Afterwards, we went and got a few groceries and some coffee and then made our way to another hotel. Shortly after checking in, the weather forecast made good on its prediction of heavy rain, leading to thunder and lightning. As early evening crept up, the rain grew heavier and a few tornado warnings were broadcast for our area. Luckily, nothing touched down nearby, but it was a pretty new experience for both of us. Once it got dark out, the rain was accompanied by incredible thunder and lightning. Truly, it was the biggest thunderstorm I have ever experienced; the lightning would arc across the entire sky and the thunder was loud enough to shake the building we were in. Dar and I went outside to a covered area to watch it for a little while, and were both so awed by the intensity of the storm. We spent the rest of the evening relaxing in our hotel room, listening to the storm and looking forward to a clear forecast for the coming days.
