The nor’easter side of Kansas has had days of hefty winds and scuds and williwaws and commotion blowing everywhere. My hair was just impossible.

I hope you have received an adequate amount of rainwater. Storms were scattered though. I started at my home north of Paola with no rain, and by the time I was in Olathe, the clouds had opened and a deluge had begun. Everything was washed clean by the massive drops. I just hoped that the members of Miami County were receiving water as well.
