Summer Storm Rolls Through Hall County

The spirit of the west wasn't dampened when the festivities at Cowboy Night at Stuhr Museum were interrupted by Friday evening's thunderstorm.

Cowboy Night had gotten off to a good start with singing, marshmallow roasting, costumes and a wagon around the 1890s Farmstead buildings. Then the storm front moved in.

Around 7:00 pm, Grand Island's outdoor warning sirens went off, and museum staff urged everyone at Cowboy Night to seek shelter in the restrooms, which also serve as that area of Stuhr's designated storm shelter.

Joe Black, Stuhr's executive director, said he was pleased with the way the staff and patrons moved quickly and calmly into the shelter. The staff listened to the weather reports, and when the storm had passed and the warnings expired, Cowboy Night was on again.
