June 17, 2015---Ed and Ginny’s house in Spearfish, SD.
We woke up to a blue sky day. At 10:00, we set off for some geocaching. The first two we found were at a sports complex. The next two were in small neighborhood parks. They were all fairly easy to locate.
About half way between the caches we stopped at a Mexican place. The food was good. They were very busy the whole time we were there.
When we got back home, it was time to rest. At 4:00, Ed and Ginny came over with snacks and chairs. We sat under a tree and visited.
An hour after the misquitos chased us back into our RVs, Ginny called to say our area was under a sever weather alert and they might take refurge in their daughter’s basement and we could go with them. I said if the went for cover to let us know. Ten minutes later she called back and said we should get to a safer place.
We were in the basement for over two hours. We had high winds and lightening. Some of the strikes were right over us. I was glad Hapa wasn’t with us.
We also had rain and some small hail. Friends from the area called and said a tornado was spotted in our area. We couldn’t see anything from our hiding place. Maybe we will get a weather report tomorrow.
