Our day on the road started at 6:45, with 769 Kms under our belt already, in a very fresh -24 degrees Celsius.

We were almost half way to I-80 when we ran into the first thunder storm. I was doing 65 when I hit the south edge of the storm. As the rain got heavier and visibility kept dropping, I slowed to 60 then 50 then 40 ...
