Alright, alright, alright.....we made it to Lake McConaughy in Nebraska. It is a beautiful 30,000 acre lake surrounded by sand beaches and campgrounds.

But, it was not without some effort to get here. We drove through a torrential downpour in the middle of the plains of Nebraska, with some insane wind, and a little bit of hail. Everyone was doing about 35 on the interstate, and we actually pulled off in a rest area for a few minutes until the rain and wind let up. There were some nasty clouds too....we were looking for a funnel cloud but never saw one.

The rest of the drive was great....a little gusty but very flat. And, we are now in the mountain time zone.

Off to Wyoming tomorrow.
