69 on its way to 99 which will be our hottest day in the last few weeks .... slight chance of rain Friday night .... Maureen is really looking forward to baby sitting her 8 month niece this afternoon .... she's the youngest relative we have on either side of our family .... baking cookies for relatives who stop by for coffee and smoking a pork loin for us are the only things on today's agenda

well, our no chance of rain until Friday appears to have been badly misstated .... lightening is turning night to day, heavy rumbles of thunder and heavy rain are the order of the moment .... 2 of the heaviest wind gust that I've felt since riding our Hurricane Michael have just shaken our camper ..... as is normal under such conditions we lost satellite TV and I must admit I couldn't help but wonder if our portable dish would be blown over .... happy to report that our TV picture has come back so the dish must have been pretty well tied down

after looking around this morning we were happy to find nothing more than plenty of leaves/small branches down and some outdoor furniture moved from last night's storm .... no clue just how much rain came down but should find that out later today .... we are looking forward to a visit from some of Maureen's nieces this morning .... sometime this afternoon we need to make a supply run to Brookings

in 2 words, hot (96 degrees) ---- windy (47 mph gust) .... in other words, its an inside type of day .... Snickerdoodle cookies baking in the oven, they sure have a good aroma .... 2 weeks from today we are scheduled to be on our 2nd day's drive on our way home .... Monday I hope to get the pressures in all 10 tires checked along with the truck's fluids .... today is the 2nd day of football practice for the local school's football team .... I enjoy watching them .... they have considerable enthusiasm but could sure use a few more big players .... no plans to use our Davy Crockett smoker today but some really nice looking baby back ribs are on hand .. :D

overnight our wind direction underwent a 180 degree change .... its now coming out of the Northeast .... 59 degrees on its way to a much cooler 73 degrees (yesterday it got up to 96) .... a band of rain moved in around 5AM, lightening and thunder followed around 5:15 .... the storm has moved on but the wind is still howling .... according to the forecast strong thunderstorms will be moving through our area in east central South Dakota .... it appears our Davy Crockett smoker will have another day off .. ;)
