Winds. Very strong winds.
Of course, that was yesterday and Kansas is filled with wind. (Be kind, now)
A picture from yesterday:
This FedEx truck was caught by high winds Wednesday, sending it off the road and into the ditch on K-15, just east of Udall.
Not near my place, but indicative of what we were seeing. Heavy rain arrived in the afternoon and continued through the evening.
We’re still experiencing clouds and intermittent rains, some winds. The temps have improved.
By the way, that truck is not an exception. We get that type of thing quite a bit. Ok has some funny laws for roads used by trucks, so we get a lot of by-pass traffic circumventing OK and the drivers don’t always understand the natural rules that apply in out state, what with the hills and valleys that protect and pound on one.
