More tornados in the Midwest today, centering on Kansas. Oh, yes, I did mention that we were driving into Kansas today, didn’t I?
One ear tuned to the radio. One eye cocked on storm clouds and lightning to the south. Another eye on the map as the radio announcer reports tornado activity. Quick, turn north, the tornado is approaching from the south! Ha ha, travel is fun!!
We had planned to camp at a state park for one night, then drive on to Smith Center, Kansas for our service appointment the following day. Expecting no storm shelters in a state park, we decided to press on to Smith Center, where we knew we could enter the service building in the event of a twister.
Thus we arrived at 6pm, just as rain started spitting. But so far, tornado activity and baseball size hail have passed us by, tho a tornado watch remains for several more hours now.
Well, at least if a tornado does carry our trailer away, we can easily order a new one from the sales office across the street, assuming it has not been carried off too.
No pictures…we were busy fleeing for our lives. Ha ha ha!
Forecast for the next 48 hours - widespread thunderstorms, possibly severe in the afternoon. May produce large hail and strong winds.
And no tumbleweeds out here to advise us!
