Rain and Hail Storm Dampens Last Friday Evening at Cheyenne Frontier Days 2013

Were you caught in the downpour on Friday evening, July 26th, during Cheyenne Frontier Days?

The dark clouds let loose around the 5 o’clock hour on Friday night and residents and visitors hurried to seek shelter from the rain and large hail stones. Cheyenne light, Fuel and Power Company reported no outages due to the storm in the Capitol City and on their facebook page they thanked the CFD volunteers and Americana Carnival staff for allowing some of their personnel to take shelter.

The KING FM staff at Frontier Park, including Steve Cooper and Teri Landreth, allowed others to huddle together under our tent for shelter from the intense storm.

At our KING studios in downtown Cheyenne, ping pong ball sized hail banged against our third floor windows for several minutes before subsiding and I watched several vehicles and a motorcyclist without a helmet seek shelter under the former ANB bank drive-thru next to the Cheyenne Police Department.

Like most of our annual monsoonal storms during Cheyenne Frontier Days, it didn’t last very long but left people soaked and more than a few impressions, and dents on vehicles, for visitors to take home as souvenirs.
