We've been back home a few days now - just in time for the election!!
In the end we did just over 5000 miles in just over 2 weeks in the USA. We saw a few good storms...fewer than we would have hoped for but that's how the cookie crumbles! The best looking storm was the one which gave our car a bit of a beating...first windshield damaged in 17 years! (from hail, anyway). Add into the mix a very cool trip to Yellowstone and Grand Teton parks and we had a great time.
The main problem was a strong and stable ridge of high pressure. But that's crumbling a bit now!
