Strong winds 06/15/17

 Wichita was put into a moderate risk for the convective outlook. Talk was a huge hail system with high winds. Luckily we dodged tbe hail but took a pretty good hit from high winds.
 Nothing like a softball game on aluminum bleachers and lightning in the area.
 Storm to the north, which merged with the storm moving from the NE.
NWS radar

Thoughts from the dustbowl? Harvest is ongoing so lots of fields are dirt. Fairly eerie to watch this approach.

From fellow ruminator, Jeanne, from the Maize area which took the brunt of 80 mph wind.

From my brother's house in NE Wichita, looking west.

Damage out near Valley Center on 85th street. A few medium sized trees were taken down in Maize.
