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.
