Some chance photos

Sometimes, while geodashing we stumble on something unexpected like these photos:

and

No, not a explosion or war, just a tornado. We live close to the center of tornado alley and so get used to hearing about some tornado nearby but it’s rare we actually see anything. We were geodashing and passed through the town of Wayne Nebraska, just a week or so after there had been a tornado. At first we didn’t remember we had heard about it on the weather reports but driving into the town we saw a swath of damage.

Much of it occurred out near the small airport. In addition to the smashed planes like many airports it was an industrial zone of fragile frame and metal buildings, several of which were really smashed to pieces (don’t have shoots of those). The area where the tornado passed through was a bit north of the main part of town so there was relatively little damage to houses, but one motel along the main road was demolished.

When you did see damage like this (or even the worse stuff on news) it reminds one of how fierce nature can be. The tornado doesn’t care what it destroys.

    Seeing those Cessnas toppled over makes me sad. Hope no one was hurt. 😔

      There was a whole swath of damage but AFAIK there were not fatalities. Warnings can be pretty good around here and people take them seriously and are prepared.
