Journal entry: dear people of the world
It rained so hard l ast night and we thought that we might have a tornado. My mom made 72 scones for a bunch of people at camp it was fun.

We traveled 14 miles today to the town of Mitchell. It started to rain when we were about two miles outside of camp. It rained and rained and rained somemore they said that we were having a storm warning for lightening and thunder.

They had all the people who were sleeping in tents sleep in a big pavillion they decided that we would not travel but we did anyway. We watched a movie in the pavillion Memphis Belle some people stayed up until 3 in the morning.

Well this is dan in a wet wet field with raining falling down in Mitchell Nebraska.
