Approaching Memphis in the rain.
We had one of our windshield wiper motors quit earlier in the day during a shower (we have three wipers, one for each window). So, I had replaced it with a spare while we were underway. I’m sure glad I did. During that rough stretch, the windshield was continuously covered with spray from the bow hitting the waves.
When we arrived at the marina, the bottom fell out of the storm which seemed to be approaching a little earlier than forecast. Everyone got soaked including the dock hands but we didn’t mind and they didn’t seem to either. We were just glad to be docked safe and secure again for the evening. We asked for a covered slip – they’re forecasting the possibility of golf ball size hail when the big stuff rolls through this evening and during the night. Unfortunately, they were all full so we’ll be at the mercy of the storm tonight.
You'll have to enlarge the photo to read the details.

Time for laundry, housekeeping, catching up the blog, etc. Looks like we’ll have to head into town to find some WiFi somewhere, none here at the marina. We may stay and enjoy the town tomorrow; there’s a music festival this weekend along the riverfront. We’ll make our plans this evening after looking at the weather forecast the next few days.
