Deadwood Rain Storm

     We took a ride to Deadwood.  The weather was nice and we left the rain gear behind.  I thought that if a thundershower came through, we would just wait till it passed.

     We enjoyed the warm sun on Deadwood's brick sidewalks.  We people watched and be bike watched.  We went to Saloon No. 10, where Wild Bill Hickok was shot while playing cards.

Then some weather blew in.

     The rainfall set records and it didn't blow over.  It rained for hours.  We holed up and I kept an eye on the Weather Channel Radar Map.  It has a unique feature that projects what the weather will be in the near future.  The map showed that there would a small break at 8:00 PM.      

     At 8:00 PM we were ready.  We scored a couple of large black trash bags from the kitchen staff at a hotel, poked our heads and arms through and we were ready.  Sure enough at the appointed time, the rain quit and we took off.  We made it back to Nemo and didn't get wet.
     We asked someone in the parking lot if they would snap a photo,
the photo came out a little blurry, but you get the idea.
