Hurricane Kansas

This is going to be a quick post because I am very tired from today's activities.  We had the biggest storm that I have seen while living here in Pretty Prairie.  Rain, Hail and 100 mph winds. I felt like I was watching one of my videos for my weather unit in school about Hurricanes.  Here are a few pictures of what we had to clean up today. (Tree limbs, branches and leaves, leaves, leaves.)

This is our porch when the storm was halfway through.

During the storm, the tree across the street was uprooted.

Part of our tree in the front yard was on the sidewalk. Our pool was still standing though. :)

This was our neighbors trampoline and it was a block away from its house.

Our neighbors huge tree was uprooted.

This car was actually on the other side of Main Street and the wind blew it across the street and the steakhouses roof came off and crashed into the building and car.

Another neighbors tree.

Roof metal hanging from the powerlines.

It was a crazy day of clean up around my town. It was like being in a tornado but no houses were torn down.  Anyway, I am off to get some sleep because my body is extremely tired.

Until Next Time,
         Happy Blogging


  1. Oh Tammy! We didn't get hit hard this time, so sorry for your clean-up. Hope you get it all back to normal soon!

    1. It was amazing how many people came out of their house to help other people clean up. Not all but most of the town was cleaned up by the next day. We still have a lot of leaves on the roads and branches everywhere but the big stuff is mostly gone. It's great to live in a small community were people care about each other.
