Rain rain go away

We woke to thunder and a small bit of rain.  The plan was to hang around until 1pm and go to a local rodeo, but we'll see what the weather does.  We have two whole days to get to Amarillo which is only one hundred miles away.  Then it started to RAIN so hard it cut off the television signal.

We turned on the news as we tend to do when we get to motels and you can see why Americans can end up very insular.  As important as it is to the report the shooting of yet another black man that's the only thing reported across three news stations.  Literally the only thing.  We've no idea on what's going on in the rest of the country, let alone the rest of the World.
