      another beautiful morning in east-central South Dakota .... currently 74 on its way to 90 with the next significant chance of rain not in the forecast until Monday .... we are starting to hear fireworks which are big out here over the 4th .... with the very dry conditions out here, there is a rising concern for fires .... we have family coming in for the holiday weekend and are looking forward to it

        our string of beautiful mornings continues .... 64 on its way to 85 with little, if any, chance of rain for today .... relatives on the way to camp with us for the weekend .... we are somewhat surprised at a noticeable reduction in fireworks over the last couple of days .... that will probably change this weekend .... its hard to believe that 4 weeks have passed since we arrived in Estelline, the time has simply evaporated

          64 on its way to 81 later today .... looks like we've missed a morning thunder storm that moved through just south of us .... other cells are in the area so we may have a chance later this morning ..... our plan to have 4 family members join us for breakfast has been delayed for an hour to allow this weather system to move on .... yep, as this is being typed rain is coming down .... nothing else on tap for today

            around 4AM a thunderstorm rolled in and is still hanging on .... this is the first significant rain we've seen in the month we've been in South Dakota .... a family breakfast set for 9AM is on hold .... for the first time this year, right after dark last night fireworks could be heard in all directions .... with the area being so dry, that was a concern which has totally been alleviated ....

              summer heat has returned for the 4th in east central South Dakota .... 92 with a RealFeel® of 98° .... we enjoyed a hamburger cookout with family for lunch .... tonight will be leftovers .... we highly recommend Green Mountain Grills baked bean recipe ===> https://greenmountaingrills.com/reci...t-baked-beans/ .... see post 47 in this thread ===> https://www.myrvtalk.com/forum/rv-li...ge4#post391932 .... last night we were pretty well surrounded by small neighborhood fireworks displays .... not much have been staged today but that will probably pickup around dark .... no large commercial shows scheduled anywhere nearby ....

                Accuweather pretty well summed it up this morning ===> "Humid in the morning, partly sunny; a severe p.m. t-storm; thunderstorms can bring a significant threat for damaging wind gusts" .... at 8AM its already up to 77 with a projected high of 85 (RealFeel® 93°) .... we brought the material to recover our camper's kitchen chairs with us and today may well be the day we undertake on this project

                      a clear blue sky has returned, 79 as this is being typed, forecasted high 83, 5 to 8 mph winds .... awaiting the arrival of a fellow from RV Armor who is due sometime in the mid afternoon .... the usual morning friends/relatives who stop by for coffee have come and gone .... a fellow who works for Estelline started mowing this morning .... if he gets to our area today, I will need to pull out a weed eater to trim around our site .... our next event is to entertain some family members for breakfast in the morning

                        69 on its way to 80 later today with no chance of rain .... nothing on our schedule for today .... we are trying to take care of some medical issues so that's a good thing .... next up, a family reunion this weekend that is bringing folks in from several states .... our 6 site campground once again has 4 empty sites .... high fuel prices has really reduced the number of folks using this campground

                          another beautiful morning in the neighborhood .... 74 on its way to 85 with little, if any, chance of rain .... a caution has been posted to "watch for a strong afternoon thunderstorm; storms can bring flash flooding and damaging winds" .... no plans to leave town today, very likely to do so tomorrow

                              busy morning, relaxing afternoon on tap .... first up, a down and back 40+ mile round trip to Brookings ..... there is a Green Mountain Grill servicing dealer in Brookings .... I have a couple of concerns that I want to talk with them about .... relatives are arriving from other states for this weekend's family reunion that is going on at Lake Poinsett .... over the next couple of days we will be spending most of our time out there .... high temps for today and tomorrow in the 80's with 100+ on tap for Monday

                                the first reunion of my wife's family since 2003 is history and 55 relatives are on the road home as this is being typed .... next up, in a couple of hours she has another much smaller reunion with 6 girls who attended South Dakota State University with her in the early '60's .... I'll drive back down there to get her Tuesday morning .... she had a great time at the family reunion and is looking forward to the same with her college friends .... they are calling for a high today of 90, tomorrow 98 .... we had a light rain yesterday, no more in the forecast within the next week and that's not good
