[laughing] Oh, do I remember that... only when I was a kid in Great Falls it usually went the other way, we'd be down at Gibson Park along the river and from out of nowhere we'd get a hailstorm... that would invariably last just long enough to convince us to pack up and go home. Of course the moment we got home the rain would stop, but then the power would go out, so we'd wind up outside again, eating our somewhat-delayed picnic.

That's another thing I miss from the plains -- REAL thunderstorms, with lightning that looks like the end of the world, and thunder like the voice of god.

Where I lived on Tower Road east of Belgrade, there was a little pit (maybe a foot deep and 10 feet across) in the field behind my trailer. During lightning storms, that little pit got hit repeatedly. I dunno what was buried there, but I felt absolutely no urge to find out.

(Conversely, I never once saw the big tower across the road get hit. ???!!)
