We got as far as DeForest and the sky started to look dark and scary and then the wind picked up and the rain started to fall hard and heavy. At one point, I felt like I might have been hydroplaning - scary. A lot of cars were pulled over on the side of the road, many with their four-ways flashing. The rest areas were overflowing but we continued on, slowing to 25 mph at times, for about 30 miles. Visibility was awful.
Just before the storm hit.
My Tree. I have been fond of this tree since 1969 and watch for it every time I travel this stretch of road. It is just north of the rest area at Mauston.
We arrived at the KOA at Hilton/Alma Center, a very nice park where we got a full hookup pull through site of the night. Once settled, we got hit with some more heavy rain. When that slowed down, we took a drive to check out the towns, each with populations of 400-500 - so not much happinging on a rainy Sunday afternoon.
