We woke up in Dodge City kind of early as we knew we'd need to get north to almost South Dakota if we wanted to see anything on Saturday the 26th. After cleaning the mud off our vehicles from the night before, we were northbound out of DDC by 930 am.
The cap was much stronger today then yesterday, but it was worth a try as Sunday's setup would be in Central Nebraska.
Unfortunately we'd get up in north central Nebraska to find out cap was going to hold - Although storms did fire they were just so high based above the stout cap.
We ended up making it about 10 miles into South Dakota before turning around and heading to Kearney for the night.
