    Oh, my gosh. I hated to even click ‘like’ on this. I hope you get those rain-free days, and a lot of them! I had to spend a little time searching around to figure out why the Smoky Hill river seemed so familiar. I finally got it — Monument Rocks are part of what geologists call the Smoky Hill chalk. When I visited there, I read quite a bit about the region — it didn’t really stick in terms of details, but it clearly ‘stuck’ firmly enough that I at least remembered the name!

      I haven’t been to Monument Rocks, yet. It’s not far from where Mr Farmer farms. I remember your trip out there a couple years ago.
      I’ve been to Castle Rocks which looks like the same formations. I’ll have to look up to see if they are part of the Smoky Hill chalk.

    Hi Debbie, I enjoyed meeting you today in McPherson ….. you mentioned your photography hobby. The photos are beautiful and very ‘Kansas’.. Seems like they should be published somewhere.

    I just saw online that Wichita and etc. are under more flood advisories. You poor people just can’t catch a break! I just talked with my aunt in Kansas City — she had to make a run to the basement because of the tornadoes that flew through there. Stay safe — we’ll pray for more sunshine for you!

      I think the cloud I photographed is the cloud that eventually made it to KC and sent your aunt to the basement. So thankful that everyone was paying attention to the weather. Only injuries and no deaths.
      I visited with some people in Salina that day who were part of a “tornado tour” with Texas tags. Just what I’d want to be doing ……riding in a big van with 15 people chasing tornadoes.

        Well that got away from me too quick. I didn’t even hit send! I looked up some of the tours for chasing tornadoes. There are quite a few of them and they are a bit pricey. Tornadoes are not guaranteed. Travel 2,500 – 4,000 mile in the 7 day tour. I have seen 2 groups of storm chasers this year on different days. They were successful on their chase!

        Oh, Lordy. Those storm chasers are… crazy. There are some pros who really know what they’re doing, and who take serious precautions, but too many people don’t have a clue. In the “chaser community,” there are discussions beginning to bubble up about the problems that the traffic alone is creating.

        My, my. One of the tours I found is part of Reed Timmer’s operation. He’s been chasing and part of the weather community for ages. I had no idea such “tours” even were a thing. I’ll pass, thank you very much!

        Oh wow. He’s a great chaser. He always has his little Yorki dog, Gizmo with him. He was able to launch some rockets right into the tornado that was up by Lawrence and Linwood. He’s either fearless or crazy, maybe a bit of both.
