Tornados

A tornado went through town last night. I was called at 10:30 to come over to my boss' house to get in the basement. I usually kind of "ride out" the storms but this storm had damaged 80% of a town about 35 miles from Manhattan so I went. There was a bunch of damage at Kansas State University ($20 million so far) and 30-40 homes were destroyed as well as many damaged. Fortunately, neither my friend's house or my apartment were damaged and all of my other friends are ok too. whew!

Here's a link to a bunch of pics, if you're interested. It's been one crazy spring! Supposedly every Thursday since sometime in April has had a severe storm somewhere in Kansas. I don't ever remember a spring like this one. Be safe!

P.S. wasn't it just 6 months ago when we were covered in ice? What a year!

  1. That must be REALLY scary! I am so glad you and your friends are safe!!! We rarely get tornadoes here - once every few years do they touch down and cause damage, but WOW...how scary to have to deal with that almost every time there is a storm!!! Glad you are safe!
