May 21 - The Great Dust Bowl

Today we targeted Torrington, Wyoming. As we drove towards it, the SSE wind increased to 25mph+. The visiblity dropped to a mile or so. We drove to the top of Scott's Bluff, but couldn't see a thing. When we got to Torrington, a storm came over (and went severe) but all we saw was one lightning bolt - due to the poor visiblity.

We also met up with Matt and Betsy. Things looked better for the next day in north central Kansas, so we went to Ogallala for the night.
