Sierra Trading Post, Cheyenne, WY (Thur.5/22)

On our way to Cody, WY we stopped in Cheyenne. Cheyenne has the big Sierra Trading Post warehouse and outlet store and 2nds (returned) and 3rds (slightly used or defective and returned). We spent a couple hours browsing the store for some deals while the boys watched Emperor's New Groove (one of the best movies ever) on a centrally located TV. We were watching the weather a bit and saw some video of a tornado about 50 miles south of us. Fine for now, but the storm was more or less heading our way. Not much later we heard the tornado sirens and the store manager called us all to the middle of the first floor into the employees' work area.

The manager came out and declared he would give us 20% off everything in the store for the next hour. They already had a 20% sale going so he called it 40%. The good news is they added percents when you're not supposed to (I didn't tell them). The bad news, as with any sale, is that we spent a bunch of extra money. Three pair of shoes and a couple back packs later we stumbled out.

Since the additional sale was for only one hour, it had kind of a game show quality to it - people hurriedly running around and such. No trampling though.

The paper house (our RV) was still standing and we didn't have any hail damage – more good news.

Our home for 5 hrs. - - - - - The snow / hail on the truck
