I took Jared and dropped him off at a swimming party and then the other 4 kids and I went to WalMart for a bit to pick up a few things. While we were there, I heard thunder and then could hear the rain hitting the roof of the store.
Sure enough, when we were checking out, I could see that it was pitch black outside and it was raining. A lot. So I left the kids inside the entrance to the store and sprinted across the parking lot to get the van. I admit - the wind was pretty brutal and I was soaked by the time I got to the van, which was only 4 spaces down the row.
Sarah shot this video as we were leaving WalMart.
And here are a few pictures that we took during the drive home and after we got back - the whole stormpocolypse lasted less than 30 minutes.
At last count there were about 2800 people here in Harvey County without power and there were some lines down. Looked like it was mostly on the south side of town as we were coming back, but everything on this end looks good, and the radar now looks clear.
So much for the stormpocolypse. Again.
