Kirtland in the Rain

Kirtland Ohio in the Rain

We got to see Kirtland Ohio, in the rain.  It was thundering and lightening when we woke.  Elizabethe and Becky ate food they brought.  I walked to Burger King and got a sandwich for breakfast.

We stopped at Historic Kirtland first.  They had umbrellas we borrowed.  After seeing a few of the buildings, we drove up to the temple to catch the 11:30 a.m. tour.

Two of the sisters took us in to the store there in Kirtland.  I love visiting the store.  The revelations that were given in that place and the heavenly visitations makes it a special place.

The Temple

We got lucky for our tour.  Ron Romig was our tour guide.  He’s very knowledgeable about the Kirtland Temple and understands much about our beliefs and their (Community of Christ) beliefs.

We then had lunch at Quaker Steak and Lube.  From there, we went back to Historic Kirtland to finish our tour there.

Drive Home

We didn’t leave Kirtland Ohio until about 6:30pm.  We stopped at Steak’n Shake and got shakes.  About an hour later, Elizabethe suggested I get some protein so we stopped at ANOTHER Steak’n Shake where I got a burger and Elizabethe got ANOTHER shake.

It started raining again.  This time very hard.  It was hard like it was when we went down to Pennsylvania last week.  About 1 hour from home, that milk shake started to take revenge.  (I’m lactose intolerant.  Sometimes it doesn’t bother me.  Not this time, however.  As a result, I was stopping every stop along I-90.)

We arrived home around 11:30pm.  Our Internet service was out.  (Which is a good thing… otherwise Elizabethe would have wanted to check emails before going to bed.)
