Looks like we may dodge the worst here where I am.

12. The concert is going on, many HSs moved prom to their school instead of the ballrooms

that decision was already made before today so they didn't have to move decorations as most places wouldn't let them start until today anyway.

The play's were cancelled. Even our church cancelled it's saturday services.

15. thanks

hadn't seen that one.


I HATE these storms. My father used to take us out in the flint hills to watch these storms. I think he scared me for life. He was fascinated by tornadoes and lightening storms.

17. When you slide in on the spotter -

the towns show up better. The activity has moved toward the northeast I see.

Are you from Emporia?

4. I've been through Salina, I think.

Is that in the northern part of the state? It seems like we used to drive through there on our way to Ohio from Colorado when I was a kid. I hope no lives are lost.

5. It's close to the middle of the state



I-70 runs through it. So if you drove across Kansas, you were in Salina.

14. I think we were traveling there before the Interstate.

Does US Highway 24 ring a bell? Mostly what I remember of Kansas is traveling through there at night, sleeping in the back seat of the car (because we didn't have to wear seatbelts back then). I guess Kansas has its own beauty but to a 10-year-old Colorado girl, it looked pretty boring.

21. Yes it's parallel to I-70

They always build interstates in the most boring part of a state. Parts of Kansas are absolutely gorgeous.

6. You are correct - Salina is on Interstate 70.

90 miles later is Hays America. Then pretty much nothin' until Denver.

20. No. My family lived in town.

We hung out at the downtown drug store. Helping with the ice cream sundae consumption.

22. drugstore memories

Spent a lot of summers in the 50's and 60's in a little town in the center of Kansas called Claflin. Nothing to do but go to the drugstore and look through the comics. We would get what was called a "suicide" at the soda fountain for a nickel. It was all the sodas and add-ons mixed together. Quite a treat.
