This is going to go down in the history books as the year of the weather.


And we are not half way through the year yet.

No debate whatsoever on your assertion SD.

It's been so rough- this one-man band has had to take a bit of a break.

Makes one wonder what's next....

Be ready for anything and everything when it comes to the weather and actions of the earth.

I remember a time when Topeka thought they was safe from tornados due to a mound on the ground. Then in 1966 that thought was proven wrong.
