What did you do with the sunshine??

Day 8 is an on the road day, but a relatively short one. Only about 420 miles today to a place called Tucumcara in northern New Mexico. Day started off lovely with great sunshine and some wicked tunes playing as we rolled along. Traffic wasn't too bad either (apart from Albuquerqhe... 2 lanes into 7 in the space of about a mile...). However the closer we got to Tucumacara the darker it got... We could see lightning in the distance but it was a bit like Wizard of Oz, it just kept getting closer with the winds building up. With about a mile to go we stopped for food and by the time we finished a friggin huge black cloud was sat right above us with fork lightning going off every few minutes.
And it stayed like that for hours!! Siobhan got some wicked footage which hopefully we'll get up on the blog today.
I'm writing this on the morning of Day 9 and the Beast is rockin.... The wind is raving and its still raining... Glad its another road day....
