It’s been quite a week in Kansas weather wise. There were sever weather warnings issued everyday. The brome grass is ready to be cut, as soon as the fields dry out they will be cutting and baling hay. It’s wonderful to see a beautiful partly cloudy Kansas sky, instead of one filled with storm clouds!
Wednesday, May 25th there was a large tornado that form just to the east of us. It was on the ground for over an hour and was up to 1/2 mile wide. It stayed mostly over rural areas, damaging around 25 homes, some that no longer exist. The tornado narrowly missed Chapman, which was devastated by a tornado in 2008.
This is the backside of the tornadic storm. It was amazing to watch the thunderhead grow so rapidly.
