  • Gotta love the storms like that... when you can just sit back and watch and not have to take cover that is.

  • Last night was one of the better songs the clouds have sung for a day or three. Very enjoyable. The air seemed to be dancing.

  • Hey Slicker,

    The ToonderBoomers make for some great shows, when it is only lighting and Toonder, without the hail and over-sized Dust Devils.

    My last time down Frenchman's Creek from Julesburg to McCook, I made it into Imperial about 30 seconds ahead of one of those pink storm fronts.

    Pulled into the Car Wash and watched trees, cars and roofs get the Bejassus pounded out of them.

    Then found a place to eat and after giving the hail a couple of hours to melt, with afternoon traffic clearing the highway surface, headed for McCook.

    Even then, in the spots where trees of any size were close to the road, there was hail debris aplenty.

    Back in '58, the area hired Krick and Associates out of Denver to seed the clouds in an effort to get more rain and less hail.

    Have they continued the cloud seeding?
