Tornado Warning

On the way from Madison, WI to South Dakota, we ran into some bad weather on the I-90 heading across southern Minnesota. Initially, the thought had been to try to outrun the storms and drive through to the other side. When hunger won out, however, the decision to stop and cook some dinner was made.

Lucky we did, because no sooner had we unpacked the coleman stove than it began to pour, and clouds moving 50 mph or so from the north and southwest collided before our eyes, causing winds of up to 80 mph, unbelievable lightning, and several tornadoes (fortunately we were not witness to any of these).
After the storm was over, we cooked dinner at the next rest area.
