Spent another day in Wall just hanging out. The severe thunderstorms that were supposed to arrive this morning, then this afternoon, then tonight, haven't materialized.
Today's first order of business
I'm going back for more tomorrow.
Then I did the laundry, worked some crosswords, took a nap. Rough day.
Jacqueline, beginning a 6-month journey, got to town late this afternoon. She and her sweet Shih Tzu, Way-San, are my neighbors tonight. Jacqueline lives in San Antonio, just attended a Roadtrek rally in Branson, and is on her way to rendezvous with 15 other Roadtrekkers. They are meeting up in Banff on June 1st and heading for Alaska. What an adventure!
I met Jacqueline briefly at Quartzsite in January and then we ran into each other a few weeks later staying at the same Wal-Mart in Ft. Stockton, TX.
We had a good visit and a good time strolling downtown Wall.
The weather is a concern tonight with the possibility of severe thunderstorms. The big worry is GDB-damaging hail so, earlier today, I scouted a good shelter for us if needed - a bank drive-through about 1 block away.
I'm seeing lightening off to the north but according to the radar, the really bad stuff is north of us and moving northwest. The prediction tomorrow is for more of the same. I'd like to head back west tomorrow and drive the Wildlife Loop at Custer State Park. We'll see if the weather permits.
Till then, goodnight from Wall, SD ....
