Lately, I have been a bit afraid to travel. It seems that we cannot go anywhere without having to dodge storms…some that include tornadoes. Sunday, we traveled to Kansas City and then returned in the same day. I saw some of the most unique clouds I have ever seen while on this trip. This video shows a storm in the Greensburg area.
You can view some sky photos at my new photo blog Kansas Weather.
It is almost midnight and I am exhausted. We spent a good portion of our night either in the closet in the basement or glued to the television watching for the next tornado warning to sound. We sat calmly in the basement until the lights went out and then the sirens sounded. Tornados headed to Greensburg, but according to the news they came and went without damage. I can hardly wait to visit with Anita to see how she is. Listening to the police scanners, it seems that there was damage in Protection. The highway that heads south out of town is closed at the moment. Four cattle trucks were overturned and electric lines are down. Sure hope it is all cleared out by 6 AM, when we have to go through on our way to OKC.
