in a perfect world of yancies: that's some wind; that's some win

13 March 2006

that's some wind; that's some win


Here's the view out our bedroom window; yeah, that trunk on the left used to stand a little straighter . . .

the storm was pretty serious, but we're fine, and Lawrence made it through much better than places in MO and IL . . .








some trees, however, didn't make it



and a brick wall was blown right onto this car

the Replay just doesn't look the same without windows; here's hoping they're on their feet again soon


these last 4 pictures are courtesy of the Lawrence Journal-World; for a full gallery of storm pictures, click here

also, I just love the play of Julian Wright; so please enjoy this video of him helping KU win the Big 12 tournament championship; you might also notice a crawl along the bottom of the screen, indicating that the storm damage was so serious on campus that they actually cancelled today's classes.

  2. Yikes -- I'm glad no one was hurt!
    (At least, there didn't seem to be any serious injuries reported in Lawrence; I hope this is true.)
    Our newspaper said 60% of the buildings on the KU campus were damaged.
