Notice the wind and rain.
06/19/2001: Onawa, IA
The day began in rain -- and last night's storm brought a tornado ten miles north of us to a small town called herman, ne, just a bit shy of where we had intended to camp.
The weather has been, if anything, a constant concern on this trip: how hot is it? How hot will it be? Will it rain? Will it lightning? Is that a head wind or a tail wind?
It is the one aspect of the environment that cannot be manipulated, only considered and cautioned against.
