We're not in Kansas anymore!

Now it's rather funny, but at the time it was really scary!
 
Ken and I were sitting on the deck with the cat.  I'd just gotten up to put down the umbrella because we were seeing the storm coming in.  I commented as I looked to the left of the above picture...."Look at all that dust!"  Then it hit.
 
It had to have been a micro burst.  I threw open the door and yelled at the cat to get inside and then proceeded to hold on to the umbrella for all I was worth.  It blew some of my plants off the deck to the ground below and actually was blowing the b.b.q grill, moving it on the deck.
 
Now I know how Dorothy felt in the Wizard of Oz.  We're all safe and there was no major damage.  It went away as quick as it came.  Ken had just snapped these pictures before the wind began to blow and I stitched them together.
 
We have a beautiful view from this little piece of Kansas City Real Estate!

Fran, that is a beautiful shot but that had to be one scary moment.  I don't think I would have been hanging on to the umbrella, the only kind of flying I want to do is in a plane......LOL

George:

I didn't want to lose my umbrella!! :)

I really couldn't decide if I felt more like Dorothy or Mary Poppins at that given moment. Here's a shot of after the storm and more clouds rolling in.
