Tuesday, March 24, 2009
As you can see, the wind was blowing quite fiercely yesterday, and continued to get stronger as the afternoon progressed. With Camilla not doing school, I decided to actually spend some time downstairs with my sewing machine. Ironically all three kids were downstairs with me, when the phone rang, Hyrum wasn't quick enough to get it for me, and it rang again. "Honestly Jacob," I thought, "can it be that urgent." Well, the tornado alerts were going off at Ft. Riley and the Commanding General was releasing the entire post to go home, or to get in the bunkers. I wasn't too uptight, I hadn't heard the alarm here, but he did finally convince me to go outside and look at the sky.Well to me it looked like a pretty standard stormy sky, but from his perspective at the top of the hill it was a picture perfect midwestern thunderstorm sky. Oh well we didn't get any tornadoes, just a few shingles in our backyard from our neighbor's roof, and some hail, but the threat was real. And so I guess if polio, measles, mumps, and rubella, etc. won't kill ya, tornados might. Welcome to Kansas!
