Where I stayed

Flag of United States  , North Dakota

About 4 pm we checked into our hotel for the night - the Days Inn in Jamestown, about 95 east of Bismarck. A bit of a surprise for a Days Inn... more like a local motel. I now know why it only cost $69 - I think I would rather of spent a few more dollars and something a bit better ... but it is only one night, and tomorrow we'll be in Minnesota at Mystic Lakes Casino Resort - a much better experience, I'm sure!

We were surprised to find, when we turned on the news, that really, really bad weather is following us! Colorado and Wyoming have had tornadoes and Rapid City had thunderstorms. Weather forecasts for tomorrow aren't that great either ... I think we should stay ahead of the ugly stuff...  I also discovered from my fav weather website (Wunderground) that Yellowstone has had snow, and is getting more overnight - 20 inches by the time it stops - and at elevations of 6000 feet and less! I think we left there just in time, too!  Hard to believe that I got a sunburn there less than a week ago!
