This weekend, we survived another example of crazy Kansas weather. We spent the weekend at Oma and Dooda's house in Lindsborg, which turned out to be a real blessing. On Saturday night, the severe storms fired up and THREE tornadic storms followed a path from the Marquette/Kanopolis area just between Salina and Lindsborg. The worst storm spawned an EF-4 tornado that was measured more than 1/4 mile wide and as it bared down on Salina, it completely dissipated 10 miles west of the city and reformed 2 miles east of Salina to affect New Cambria and Niles. It was a very scary night, but we were happy to have a basement to hide out in during the weather. Ledger actually really loved camping out in the basement and thought it was a fun adventure. Locke slept through the whole thing. Mommy and Daddy had a nervous night and didn't get much sleep, but we could appreciate how lucky we were to be that close to a tornado and be unaffected.

He was way too excited!
