4. North of Bonner, along I70
So east of Douglas County. Looks like Leavenworth County or western Wyandotte County.

The wife and I were up there a couple weeks ago, all it did was piss rain, and it was damn cold.

14. Tell me about it
its just been especially colder than usual for this time of year, it really hasn't been raining/windy that much, but winter still has its claws in a bit. The past week though, has been spring like, and next week its suppose to be a lot of rain/wind, so I think...spring is here, I'm so tired of dealing with wood/fireplace...

17. I was down your way a couple weeks ago
A friend is in a nursing home in Mt Vernon.

Also went down to the GW Carver park. That was cool.

19. I've never been to Mt. Vernon
my father in law goes up there to the VA Hospital...you were pretty close though, :D

We should do another meet up, this time I'll bring lots of beer...and hopefully this time, the waitress won't spill a gallon of water in my lap...I can hope, can't I?


:D

12. hmm,
thats not good, :(

We haven't had much severe weather down here...yet, this coming week is going to be a doozy though, we usually don't see serious stuff until May....

Its crazy, I've been through two tornados in Douglas Co, once I slept right through it, the other time it was on the East side of Lawrence, that was...hmm, May of 03 or so.

We had some close ones last year, one in Seneca, MO, which is literally 15 miles from our home, and another one that went in between Diamond, MO and Joplin, MO.

15. Check out those tweets
They are tracking the storm.

TV showing damage now. Doesn't look good but it is a rural area so not a lot of damage yet.
