Grand Island, NE. 53 miles. Grass lot. Warm, stormy.

A line of thunderstorms came out of Kansas during the second show in Minden last night. Mid-way through the first display a 70 mph wind gust hit knocking down the horse canopy. We cleared the bigtop and resumed the show an hour later to a small crowd that sat the first storm out in their cars. Storms continued through the night with at least one direct lightening strike on the lot. This morning it took three tractors, a payloader, and an elephant to get the trucks back onto pavement. That's why we call it a mudshow.
