Uh oh folks! ANOTHER massively WET summer may be in store for the Mid Atlantic!

Need a break from the relentless rains?

Come see us in warm, dry Texas.

 

All of these weather anomalies in the Mid Atlantic - They have nothing to do with The Matrix.

This is Climate Change. It will continue. It will increase with time.

The storms down here in Texas are changing a little as well. 

They are getting stronger. A chinaberry tree hit the side of my moms house a few days ago during an electrical storm. We had 66 mph wind gusts and horizon to horizon lightning for at least 2 hours. There were many cloud to ground strikes.

I am definitely not in Kansas anymore, lol.

I now know how all of you Caps fans felt last year. Alexa, play Gloria. 

Congrats. 

Also, poor Canada. The streak continues. I think it’s 26 years without a Canadian champion now?

Guess I have my answer to all that caterwauling I was hearing to my south last night. Thought the apocalypse was incoming. :whistle:

I wonder what's happening in Ohio recently. 

The usual. The sun rises in the east. Sets in the west. Rivers catch on fire. And the Browns still suck. :D

The end of this week we will be loading up the family truckster and embarking on a road trip to South Dakota. Husband has always wanted to see the Bad Lands, and he has sabbatical he needs to use. Taking our time and stopping at whatever roadside oddities we can. Teenage daughters are up for the challenge of limited internet and reading an actual map. The song Holiday Road has been added to our playlist. There will be no dying Aunt or dog peeing on our sandwiches though.

I assume you'll end up on I-90.  As you approach Chamberlain, SD, stop at the scenic view stop.  As soon as you cross the Missouri River there, the scenery changes pretty drastically.  It's really neat.

There's a diner called Al's Oasis just over the river that's unexpectedly solid.

Thanks for this! I told him about what you said and he said he had heard about the diner. We are all for stops like the two you mentioned. If you have anymore let me know. We found a site called roadside America and have planned many stops.

If you're into cars, there's a car museum in Murdo.

 

Wall Drug is a tourist trap, but it's pretty neat.

 

Wall Drug is a must stop. We are actually staying our first couple of days on a guest ranch in Interior. So not that far from Wall. We are all about the kitch.

Totally agree about Wall Drug. It’s a neat place that we actually stumbled upon. Pretty good food in the area too. 

I also liked the Crazy Horse Memorial, which is near Mount Rushmore. A lot of good items in the museum and the food was solid. 

If you like good food (and I know you do) @Mrs.J, Madison, WI is awesome. The Old Fashioned was super busy but tremendous.

So ...you show up at someone's ranch/ farm and spend the night there . ( Does this include wild life fun:D).

I assume you're riding their horses since you're a horse girl...no?

Awesome about Madison! We are taking a different route out through Iowa, but are coming back through MN and WI. Husband wanted to stay in Madison.
