Stupid Kansas Weather**UPDATE**

They are forecasting hail larger than baseballs here. That shit will destroy my new van, and probably my roof not to mention my windows in my house. My dh is at work and I am home with the kids without a basement. Tornado risk is moderate but still there. UGH what is going on with this damn weather?

Well, the sirens have gone off once already. A house west of town lost it's roof and trees were damaged. Hail but not as big as they predicted, yet. High winds. We took shelter in our neighbors basement. Another round is headed out way. Sounds like North East OK got hit really bad. I've been following Reed Timmer on Facebook and he said he came across people who had been thrown from vehicles.

I think hail scares me more than tornadoes. Least you know what a tornado is going to do, hail is so damn nuts.

We are about to get the line here in KC but it looks like the tornados threat won't be as much as an issue as wind and hail for us. My mom was freaking out about her car. She bought a brand new Honda a month ago. 

Hope everyone stays safe tonight

Im South west of KC. I have a van we bought two months ago and as I sat in the basement with my kids I could not stop worrying about it. LOL. The hail was not too big here. I hope you guys dodge the bullet.
