Yes, we had some very bad weather yesterday. Drove to the airport and back after the worst of it under some clouds that were straight out of The Wizard of Oz. Saw the aftermath in one area: houses destroyed, trees snapped halfway up the trunk, debris strewn across the highway and hanging from trees. The KC area wasn’t the only one hit in the Midwest, either.
