Another wild afternoon in S.E. Kansas. Tornado sirens started going off late afternoon. Tom was just getting home from VBS and drove me across the street to the neighbors who have a basement (we don't). It rained buckets and we had marble sized hail for a short time. Luckily there doesn't seem to have been any damage reported.
After about an hour we came home and Tom took these pics while it was still raining (the spots on the lens). The drainage ditch that runs through our lots was overflowing again. Here it is backing up at the brick bridge.
The water really gets to churning when the rain comes this fast.
Another hour passed and a second system roared through with tornado sirens blaring again. If you've never heard them, Judy L posted a video on her blog last night. She lives about 40 miles from here across the border in MO. They had a rough and tumble night as well. This time I was too tired to even think of traipsing back to the neighbors, so I just sat in my recliner and decided if it was my time to blow away, so be it. Once again luck was on our side and no damage seems to have been done by the storms.
