Today was an interesting day. It started out perfect with blue skies, and a forecast of 30% rain later in the evening. Then it turned stormy, and eventually we were in the middle of a tornado watch! Colleen was nervous to say the least, especially with dark clouds looming over the horizon all around us. We managed to dodge the majority of the storm, and by the time we got to the Nebraska border, the sky was pretty well clear. We are now settled in for the night ...
