Anyway oven will survive under the blue tarp and thoughts of mortar can wait.

We are headed through though Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, turn north into New Mexico, and end up in a small town near Boulder, Colorado for a niece's graduation. We need to get there by Thur pm so not much chance to stop on way up. We plan to take our time on the way back and current thought is to spend a few days in Santa Fe, NM and New Orleans, LA. We are open to suggestions regarding places to stop along route. Bruce

Stopped and had dinner in Shreveport, LA at a place called "Blind Tiger." We shared a Cajun sampler. Took a few pics for Dave. A big storm went through while we were there. After it passed we drove a few hours into Texas and stayed the night in Liddell, TX. We are back on the road and will be passing through Dallas before long.

We hadn't been paying a lot of attention to our route and just followed the GPS as it routed us into Oklahoma. Traffic came to a virtual halt and it took us nearly 2 hrs to go about 10 miles. It became clear the cause of the traffic jam was that we were passing through Moore, OK where the tornado had come down a few days ago. I took these pictures form the van as we passed through. Damage was on both sides of the interstate.

Yes it's had big coverage over here as well . You pics are very sobering and make it a bit surreal as I know there not a cropped news item
My prayers for the folk in Moore and you stay safe

Bruce,
Thanks for the pics from Moore, Oklahoma. I second CobblerDave's comments. I have had the roof blown from over my head twice. First during hurricane Camille (1969). The second was during a tornado in North MS (1987). Both of them made lifelong impressions on me.

Days/weeks without electricity, here in the piney woods, from storms like Hurricane Fredrick, Ivan etc. had some influence on me in to relearning how to live/cook off of the grid (ie: the WFO).

I would like to suggest/challenge something to every WFO builder on this forum. If you can build a WFO, you have what it takes to build a safe room.

I built my safe room first. I built it the months after Hurricane Katrina . It has been a real comfort to me to know that my children know exactly where to bring my grandchildren when the weather is threatening.

If you are a newbie, and have the choice. Build the safe room first.

Just Sayin'

Sounds like good advice for those in tornado alley or near southeastern coast. We drove to New Orleans in 2006 for Jazz Fest following Katrina (2005). Blue tarps were prevalent the destruction along the coast only partially cleaned up. Makes one appreciate the force of wind and water.

I'll try and get things up to date. We stopped in Hays, KS on Wen. Had dinner in a German microbrewery (image 1). On Thur we drove to Boulder, CO and stopped at the Pearl Street Mall area. This is about 4 block area of shops, restaurants, and pubs. We had a great time at the Mountain Sun Pub. The main entrance was not accessible by wheelchair. The manager escorted us around to the back and we went in the delivery door. He asked what kind of beers we enjoyed and brought samples of eight beers for us to try (image 2). He and the staff spent a fair amount of time talking to us and the manager comped us the first round of beers. We looked around the area and then went on to our destination about 10 miles away. Friday we helped get things ready for my niece's graduation party. They had arranged for catering with a mobile WFO and asked me to make whole wheat dough for a few people who had requested it. I made up five 300 gm dough balls and put them in the fridge for use the next day. The remaining pics are of Howard and his oven. The whole wheat crusts (75% whole wheat) came out very well. I spent the party talking to Howard and he gave me tips on pizza making and working the oven. The best part is that he asked if I wanted to play with the oven for a few days. He said he would not be using and left it along with dough balls cheese and toppings. So I have today and tomorrow to use it on my own.

My first WFO pizza.

Well I have been having fun playing with Howard's WFO. Temp was about 400 F when I checked this am. I started a fire in the center of the hearth and decided to try a breakfast pizza. After I moved the fire to the side, the floor was a bit over 550 F. I took a dough ball and worked into a rough circle and put pesto, fresh mozzarella, shredded mozzarella, Howard's house made sausage, and an egg. Came out pretty good. Bruce
