I heard that they flew but was not there.  When was that?  Yes, you should have gotten a picture.  I think that they ordered those tent stakes from a circus tent supply place.  No one else would have them that size.

No, that would have made a great photo though.  Those were some serious stakes.
Maybe someone from Kansas can go back to take a photo.  I have a feeling those tents are still up??
I wish I'd taken a photo of the tents blowing away at Kansas State though. At one point I really thought they were going to be air lifted right over into MO.

Yes - Everything was moving.  There were some times I actually had to brace myself to keep from being blown over by a gust.  I was totally amazed how well the TBs actually stood up to the wind.

Linda, did you happen to get a shot of the pins they were holding the shade covers down with?  I intended to take a picture because I had never seen such huge tie-downs.

How windy was it.??????
  •   Look at these ladies hair. And note the trash can tied in.  There's one thing for sure we had food everywhere.  If nothing else it's worth going to convention to get all the goodies.
At this place, if you got up out of your chair, you were asked to fold it and lay it on the ground.
Otherwise it blew to MO.
This was at the Kansas State Research and Extension Center.
It's a miracle we got any photos that afternoon.
But "sport" really works for speed on my camera.  I just wish I had thought to put on movie so you could really tell have fast iris can move. HA! Jan wasn't joking when she said, she'd focus and then wait for iris to return from it's wind blown status and be in her camera view finder.
