WARNING Picture INTENSIVE!!
On to more fun things...We had a great time in Malta MT over the 4th of July. We walked to breakfast at the GN (Great Northern) Hotels Coffee Bar and walked around town taking a few pictures I would like to share with you. Chuck and I got a weeks worth of laundry done and bought a few things at the local Albertson's before retiring back to our room to play around...dirty minds...
on the computers before the fireworks. Talk about fireworks. I was really impressed at the variety and how long they went on. We watched the sky for almost an hour before giving it up and going back inside. Small town American takes its Independence seriously folks.

We got the car out of the shop around noon and was surprised at the difference in the way it sounded and handled. Now folks they only put a water pump on it but they must have tightened up some loose bolts or something cause the squeaks and rattles were definitely less.
After loading everything back in the car we headed east out of Malta MT towards the Dakotas in hopes of picking up a severe storm later in the day. Just out of Malta there was a sign on the side of the road that read, "Incident Ahead" Hmmmm....wonder what kind? Here's what we saw about 1/4 mile down the road...
Part of a train had derailed and was lying along side the track. From what we saw no one had been hurt and they were in the process of getting it straightened out.
I guess by now you are bored stiff and wondering if we found a storm or not...YES! It was a pitiful little storm by the time we intercepted it but we did get to it before dark. Here are a couple unremarkable pictures but at least we got to see a storm today.

Well thats it for today and tomorrow unless some fantastic miracle occurs and the weather progs change we will be heading west to the Yellowstone National Park for a look around. It is on the bucket list of places we want to go and with no weather to be had it seems like a good place to go. Have a great day!
