Our target area for today was the Texas Panhandle. Along the way we passed through communities large and small: Oklahoma City, Lawton, Altus in Oklahoma; Childress, Paducah, Matador, Floydata, Plainview in Texas. Our over 400 mile journey was a dry run. No storms materialized, so we stopped for the day in Plainview. Plainview was named for its brilliant view of the Plains, which is Texas-speak for a 360 degree view of absolutely nothing.
