KANSAS - APRIL 14, 2012

What a day.
The news said that there were close to 100 tornado touchdowns in Kansas on Saturday! Normally I would have loved to be out chasing, but - I like being alive. So we packed up and headed to my Mommy's house. She has a cellar, and we prepared for the worst. She lives in Nickerson, Ks, and we were under a tornado warning there a couple of times, but nothing came of it. Just a little rain. Nothing more than some fairly heavy rain in Hutch either. This was good.
My stubborn headed child and her man decided it was fine to stay in their trailer park because "ohhh nothing is going to happen". Maybe not. And nothing did. But this weather was nothing to be screwing around with. The news on TV showed so many images of trailer parks that DID get hit - total devastation. No loss of life for Kansas, and this is because MOST people took it seriously and were prepared.
So for me, no tornado shots, no lightning shots, nothing more than some angry looking cloud photos. But - I'm still alive....
