    Oh yes. The same thing happened in the greater San Antonio are late last night - thunder, impressive lightning flashes, heavy rain and hail, mostly pea-sized thankfully. What a show!

    RapidSpyder, is that a different Rapid City? This was in my wx history "Posted: Apr 13, 2018 7:40 AM CDT Courtesy: SD DOT - Rapid City, SD South Dakota officials closed Interstate 90 from Murdo to Mitchell at 2:30 p.m. I-90 is now closed from Rapid City to Mitchell, both east and westbound."

    Or has it already re-opened as of Apr 14th, It's still wicked here in Southern MN.

    Winter has not left here either, we had sleet hitting the windows also. The temps are in the 30's it is the middle of April. No riding for me today. I have 7 more days to wait.

    My spyder is still in hibernation due the weather.

    I know that stretch of road well. We used to stay at the Super 8 in Murdo, visit the auto museum, and make a day trip to the badlands. It took just minutes to get there from Murdo--because of the time zone change.

    Same crap here. Pounded the house loud enough to wake us up last night. Rain, snow, sleet, freezing rain....we're gettin' it all this weekend. Weather guessers are saying 3-6" of snow for tomorrow....Not a 50* day in sight til at least next weekend. Somebody pissed in Mother Nature's Wheaties, and she's gettin' even.

    Default Never Doubt the Ground Hog...

    Looks like Wisconsin is Ground Zero for this blizzard. Hardly any snow all winter and now this. Pretty much "snowed in" both Saturday and Sunday. Most churches have cancelled services and most retail is closed.
    Monday morning should be interesting when we all go back to work.

    Here's the irony, on Friday I fired up the Spyder from her Winter Hibernation anticipating a ride in the next few days. NOT GONNA HAPPEN!

    Mother Nature is a nasty witch, with a wicked sense of humor!

    Yesterday: it got up to 68 degrees here. I took off for a 40 mile ride, once the yard work was done!
    Today: it's looking ugly; the rest of the week looks no better!

    Sitting here in my recliner with the wife in hers, drinking coffee, staring out the window, looking at 16" more snow! Got to wait until the wind quits howling so I can plan my strategy on how I'm going to crawl thru the snow drift on our porch to get to the shop to get the blower out AGAIN! WINTER REALLY SUCKS IN APRIL!! Mac
